Meaning Game Night: 2030 SDGs Game

  • PLATF9RM Tower Point, Floor 5 Brighton, BN1 1YR United Kingdom (map)

WHAT IS THE 2030 SDGs GAME?

It's a multiplayer, card-based game 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'S THE FORMAT?

An hour of game play, a short break for pizza and beer and an hour for group reflection & discussion.

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 the Sustainable Development Goals, and ways the world can achieve them. But the change in attitude and worldview is the most significant effect.

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. Earning extensive media coverage and reaching 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. And so due to a growing demand Imacocollabo created an English version of the game. Find out more on the 2030 SDGs Game website.

WHO ARE THE HOSTS?

This game night is brought to you in partnership with the Meaning Conference. Meaning connects and inspires people who believe in better business. It happens every November at Brighton's historic Dome concert hall.

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.
