At last year’s Meaning conference we were proud to host the UK launch of the 2030 SDGs Game. After seeing the buzz it created and hearing the amazing feedback from participants we knew we had to arrange another opportunity to play as soon as possible!
Our own worries about the future of the planet and for humanity itself are become increasingly visceral. But we’re pretty determined to stay positive and be part of the solution. Will you join us to explore the possibilities?
The United Nations’ 2030 Sustainable Development Goals provide a framework for developing a fair, prosperous and environmentally sustainable world that has been agreed by every UN nation.
But of course ambitious global goals like these can seem too big to enable a single person, organisation, or community to make a difference. The brilliantly designed 2030 SDGs Game lets a group steer the world from now to 2030, making the choices that determine our shared future.
Having originated in Japan the game was played by more than 30,000 people there in 2018 alone, thanks to its empowering and transformational approach. Players finish the game seeing the connection between small choices and large outcomes, and knowing that they can make a difference.
“The SDGs Game is a great way of experiencing what it’s like just to get started on your bit of the puzzle and simultaneously work together to make a difference across the whole puzzle. It’s exciting, collaborative and eye opening. I highly recommend it!”

Anyone can! It’s been played by the senior management of global companies, by secondary school children, by activists, government officials, and everyone in between. The more diverse the game participants are, the more representative of society it is.
The full ticket price to play is £35.
This ticket price covers all the costs of the evening (including pizza and drinks). The majority of the revenue generated goes back into the 2030 SDGs Game organisation. This subsidises game play in education settings and for less affluent communities around the world.
You may feel £35 is little too much for your budget. Or you may be able to contribute more. So we have the option of a sliding price scale between £20 and £60, so you can contribute an amount that’s right for you.
The game has been brought to the UK in partnership with A Fairer Society, a community-led development firm that helps its clients build a fairer society, one community at a time. Co-founders Nathaniel Whitestone and Peter Burke will be our facilitators on the night.
A big thank you goes out to the lovely folks at PLATF9RM for hosting us at their co-working space in Brighton.
