Event description
WHAT IS THE 2030 SDGs GAME?
It's a multiplayer, card-based workshop that simulates taking the “real world” into the year 2030.
In the game participants work together and in groups to explore how the world can achieve the UN's sustainability goals - or fail to.
WHO CAN PLAY?
You can! Anyone can! This game has been played by the senior management of top 10 global companies, by secondary school students, by activists, government officials, and everyone in between.
This is an innovative, unique and highly collaborative approach to real world issues.
The more diverse the game participants are, the more representative of society it is.

WHAT EFFECT DOES THE GAME HAVE?
Participants experience a change in perspective. Most players finish the game feeling excited, connected and ready to take action. They often ask, “What can I do next to make a difference?”.
Players finish the game with an understanding of why we have Sustainable Development Goals (our Global Goals), and what effect working on Global Goals can have in our own lives and work as well as on our shared world. Most important, players often feel able to make a real difference in the world.
"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
WHERE HAS THE GAME COME FROM?
Designed in Japan in 2016 by the team at Imacocollabo, this experience has become a powerful and impactful social phenomenon in Japan. The Game earned extensive media coverage and reached over 30,000 participants in 2018 alone. The 2030 SDGs Game is played in corporate, governmental, educational, and community settings. There are now over 300 trained facilitators within the community in Japan. Due to a growing demand Imacocollabo created an English version of the game. The Game has now been played on 5 continents by more than 100,000 people.

WHO ARE THE HOSTS?
The session will be facilitated by Nathaniel Whitestone and supported by Peter Burke - co-founders of A Fairer Society who are the UK's first facilitators of the game.
