What is the 2030 SDGs Game?

The 2030 SDGs Game is a multiplayer, facilitated card-based game that simulates taking the “real world” into the year 2030. Participants will work together and in groups, exploring how to create a prosperous, fair and sustainable world.

Designed in Japan in 2016, the game events are held in corporate, governmental, educational, and community settings. This experience has become a powerful and impactful social phenomenon, earning extensive media coverage in Japan and reaching over 150,000 participants worldwide.

The United Nations' 2030 Sustainable Development Goals are ambitious and can seem overwhelming, simply due to their volume and scope. While dramatic in their potential impact on the world, approaching them can be daunting. With a game approach, there are 3 powerful advantages:

  1. It gives people a direct experience of participating in co-creating a sustainable world (“I can do it”; “what I do makes a difference.”)
  2. It simplifies and makes accessible an extremely complex issue to a level that allows people to begin to understand, while stimulating our natural curiosity to learn more.
  3. It activates players’ 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.
