The 2030 SDGs game (Sustainable Development Goals Game) is an experiment that helps understanding why sustainable development goals are important and what our possible impact is to build a world that matches our values.

This game was developed in 2016 in Japan, launched in 2019 in Switzerland and France, with more than 600 certified facilitators in Japan and 50 worldwide.
For more than 4 years, it has been a great success in Japan. This game, which has become a powerful and impactful social phenomenon, enjoys wide media coverage and reaches more than 150,000 participants. 2030 SDGs Game events are organized in corporate, governmental, educational, and community settings.

Game goals and description

Goals of
the game:
This game provides a playful understanding of why we need Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This card-based multiplayer game offers a real-world experience to participants who simulate what the world might look like in 2030.

Game description:
Participants receive time and money to complete projects and work towards their goals. The world condition meter (economy, environment, society) will evolve accordingly.

Which result implies the way you play the game? Will you create a prosperous, fair and sustainable world?
Or will the world in 2030 be even more unbalanced than it is today?
