What is the 2030 SDGs game?

It’s a multiplayer, card-based game where participants work together in groups. The aim is to explore how the world can achieve sustainability goals – or fail to.

Ticket prices start at £15 and the whole experience will take around 2 ½ hours, including playing and reflection, and extra time for networking.

The game was made by Imacocollabo, a company that focuses on international collaboration. Designed in Japan in 2016, the experience has become a powerful and impactful social phenomenon in Japan, earning extensive media coverage and reaching over 30,000 participants in 2018.

Due to a growing demand to bring the game to the rest of the world, the company have created an English version. The UK is the beginning of introducing the game to a wider audience globally.

Who can attend?

The 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. The more diverse the game participants are, the more representative of society it is.

Having played the SDGs Game themselves, Oxford Wood Recycling were enthusiastic to become a partner in this global movement. CEO Richard Snow said:

‘The SDGs provide an inspirational global context for our environmental and social objectives and the Game provides a great opportunity for us to engage further with our local community.’
