The Griffith University EcoCentre Manager, Delwyn Langdon, travelled to Japan in January to undertake training to become a Certified Facilitator of the 2030 SDGs Game. The EcoCentre is now ready to host its first 2030 SDGs Game session.
What is the 2030 SDGs Game? The 2030 SDGs Game is a multiplayer, in-person, card-based game that simulates taking the "real world" into the year 2030 using the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The 2030 SDGs Game was designed in Japan in 2016 by Imacocollabo. Since then, this experience has become a powerful and impactful social phenomenon, earning extensive media coverage, and gaining momentum worldwide.
The game provides three powerful benefits to communities and organisations:
It gives participants a direct experience of participating in co-creating a sustainable world.
It simplifies and makes accessible an extremely complex issue to a level that allows participants to begin to understand the Sustainable Development Goals while stimulating our natural curiosity to learn more.
It activates participants' natural instincts to set their aim toward a worthy goal, simultaneously building confidence and making it enjoyable, while inspiring and motivating players to take action in the real world.
