A thought-provoking multi-player facilitated card game simulates what the world could look like in 2030. The 2030 SDGs Game highlights the importance of balancing the three pillars of People, Planet and Prosperity and brings sustainability to life. Participants in the simulation receive time, money, and projects, and decide how to invest their resources and which projects to run in order to work towards achieving their goals. What will be the impact on the world of the projects they play? Will they create a prosperous, fair and sustainable world?

Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

Launched in 2015, the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a series of ambitious targets to end extreme poverty, fight inequality and injustice and fix climate change for everyone by 2030. If the Goals are met, they ensure the health, safety and future of the planet for everyone on it. The SDGs are universally relevant and we are all have a role to play in contributing to a more sustainable world.

The best chance of the SDGs being met is if everyone on the planet is aware of them.

Participants playing the 2030 SDGs Game learn through play and experience a change in perspective, they feel more connected to the challenges we all face and are more ready to take action.
