The 2030 SDGs Game

GCSS, in partnership with Hongkong-based consulting firm Koru Consulting, offers this multiplayer, in-person, card-based game that simulates taking the “real world” into the year 2030. This is an innovative, unique and highly collaborative approach to real-world issues. The more diverse the game participants are, the more representative of society it is, exploring how the world can achieve sustainability goals.

The 2030 SDGs Game events are now held in corporate, governmental, educational, and community settings globally. GCSS is one of the few organizations in Southeast Asia that offers this.

SDGs Game



Participants experience a change in perspective. Most players finish the game feeling excited, connected and ready to take action.

Players often ask, “What can I do next to make a difference?”

While players do finish the game with an understanding of the goals, targets and the various ways the world can achieve these. The change in attitude and worldview is the most significant effect.


The game was made by Imacocollabo, a company that focuses on international collaboration.

Designed in Japan in 2016, this experience has become a powerful and impactful social phenomenon in Japan. Earning extensive media coverage and reaching over 30,000 participants last year.

2030 SDGs Game events take place in corporate, governmental, educational, and community settings. There are now over 300 trained facilitators within the community in Japan.
