Hosting the 2030 SDGs Game

Impact

The 2030 SDGs Game is what we call a gateway experience. Participants wake up to the systemic impact they already have. They see ways they can take action to make positive change that they previously had not considered.

 

To maximise the positive impact in your community or organisation, include participants who might be able to work together on projects that make a difference (whether or not those participants know each other yet).

Numbers

The experience is best with about 35 participants, but we can accommodate 5 to 48 participants quite easily and groups of up to 200 with a slight adjustment to the process. Larger groups are possible with more preparation.

Timing

The full experience takes two to three hours for Community and Nonprofit games, and three to four hours for Corporate games (where we review business content in more depth). Often the final hour is the most valuable; if you have played the game you will probably remember this. In the final hour, participants have already explored the implications of their choices together, and have begun applying their new insights to their lives and their work. If possible, we strongly recommend giving participants the opportunity to engage with each other for the full time. You are likely to get more grounded action and valuable relationships emerging in your community or organisation as a result.

Hosting

We expect game hosts to provide a venue with a magnetic whiteboard, whiteboard markers, a projector screen, and a projector. We also need cafe-style tables (seating up to 4 people) and chairs for all the participants. For larger events of more than 48 participants, we will need multiple whiteboards and microphones to amplify participant voices.

 

If you don’t have access to a venue, we suggest working with another host (a co-host such as a school or university) that could provide the venue. If you need help making an agreement with a potential co-host we are willing to help.

Outreach / Marketing

If you are hosting an open (community) game, we will work with you to spread the news about your event. We will have a conversation about your objectives and talk with you about who in your network would be best to include to get the impact you are hoping for. We will also send out invitations to our list and publish the game event on our website. In most cases, we will handle ticketing through Eventbrite or a similar online service.

 

Post-game Support

We offer bespoke post-game support to your organisation and/or community. What impact do you want the game to have? The support we can offer includes:

  • Leadership development
  • Culture change
  • Sustainability strategy development
  • Collaborative project development
  • Mentoring for entrepreneurs and emerging leaders

 

We are also happy to work with your team to integrate the game with an existing programme. In our initial conversation, please tell us about any programmes to which we can connect game material and follow-on support, and we will shape the game reflection appropriately.
