The 2030 Sustainable Development Goals Game: Simulating a Sustainable World
What will it take for all of humanity to become engaged in creating a just and sustainable world? The 2030 Sustainable Development Goals Game takes us on an experiential journey into such a future. The game has gone viral in Japan and demand to bring it all over the world is rising; now you can experience this phenomenon firsthand.  

Designed in Japan in 2016 to ground the UN's seventeen Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into personal experience, this multi-player, in-person, card-based game event has become a powerful social impact movement in Japan, earning extensive media coverage and reaching over 12,000 participants last year. 2030 SDGs Game events are now held in corporate, government, educational, and community settings, and have over 150 trained facilitators in a rapidly growing community within Japan. Emerging from the momentum around this game experience in Japan is a vibrant community of committed "players": people engaged in a larger game of creating a peaceful, prosperous world where humanity and the natural world can truly thrive together.

Participants report finishing the game feeling inspired, connected, and ready to take action on the big issues of our world. The game and the facilitated dialogue afterwards are designed not to academically study the SDGs themselves, but rather to bestow a felt experience of why the SDGs are so vital to humanity and what possibilities they bring to our future.  

The 2030 SDGs Game is making its U.S. public debut at Bioneers. This is your opportunity to experience the game, meet the creators and the support team for Europe and the Americas, and discover how to offer this engaging experience to your institutions and communities.
