About this Event

What is the 2030 SDGs Game?

It's a facilitated multiplayer, card-based game that simulates taking the world into the year 2030. During the game, up to 50 participants work together to explore how the world can achieve a prosperous, fair and sustainable future. The whole experience takes 2.5 hours including game-play, reflection and some time for networking.

What will my takeaways be?

The game is an innovative, unique and highly collaborative approach to real-world issues. You not only get a deeper understanding of what the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals are, but also learn in a fun, playful way about their interconnectedness as well as how they can be achieved by 2030.
