Possible World - 2030 SDGs Game
An innovative simulation that raises awareness and engages people in exploring how we can achieve the Sustainable Development Goals beyond 2030.
The Sustainable Development Goals are a collection of 17 global goals set by the United Nations General Assembly in 2015 for the year 2030. They are a series of ambitious targets to end extreme poverty, fight inequality and injustice and fix climate change for everyone by 2030. If the Goals are met, they ensure the health, safety and future of the planet for everyone on it. The best chance of the SDGs being met is if everyone on the planet is aware of them.
