Event description
An innovative game and networking event that engages participants in exploring how the world can achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.

About this Event

Everything you do matters.

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

Come and play the innovative, fun and interactive 2030 SDGs Game that teaches, inspires and engages participants around this universally relevant topic. This is a unique opportunity to participate in the launch of the 2030 SDGs Game in Switzerland and meet the Japanese founders.

"We talk about the SDGs, but what can we actually do about them and how do we do it? Like many of today’s big issues, it all seems so big, complicated and impossible to do alone that it’s hard to get started. The SDGs Game is a great way of experiencing what it’s like just to get started on your bit of the puzzle and simultaneously work together to make a difference across the whole puzzle. It’s exciting, collaborative and eye opening. I highly recommend it!" - Zelah Senior, Diabetes UK

WHAT IS THE 2030 SDGs GAME?

It's a facilitated multi-player, card-based game that simulates what the world could look like in 2030. During the game, up to 50 participants work together to explore how the world can achieve the Sustainable Development Goals or fail to do so.

What will be the outcome of the way you play the game?

Will you create a prosperous, fair and sustainable world?

Or will the world in 2030 be even more imbalanced than today?

WHERE DOES THE GAME COME FROM?

The game was designed in Japan in 2016 where it has been played by over 50,000 participants and has become a powerful and impactful social phenomenon. Due to a growing demand the game is now available in English and is starting to be played around the world, including here in Switzerland.

WHO CAN PLAY THE GAME?

Anyone can! Whether you have no prior knowledge of the SDGs or you are an SDG expert you can play this game. The game has been played by senior management of leading global companies, government officials, secondary school students, activists and everyone in between. The more diverse the game participants are, the more representative of society it is.

WHAT EFFECT DOES THE GAME HAVE?

"Tell me, and I will forget. Show me, and I may remember. Involve me, and I will understand.”

Participants playing the game experience a change in perspective, they feel more connected to the challenges we all face and are more ready to take action.

WHO RUNS THE 2030 SDGs GAME?

This game will be facilitated by Imacocollabo the creators of the game from Japan and supported by Alice Richard of Co-CREATE ImpACT, who is Switzerland’s first accredited facilitator. With thanks to the SDG Solution Space in Geneva for hosting the game.
