What do you imagine our world will be like in 2030?
SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) are goals agreed at a UN summit in order to create a better world by the year 2030. However, these goals can often seem large, difficult and to cover a large number of topics.
Now you can have fun learning more about the world of SDGs through a card game at this event which is one of the “Student Diversity Center Collaboration Events 2020”.
The “SDGs Action CARDGAME X (Cross)” (details below) is used in businesses and local governments and is a great way for people to get experience in innovating and problem solving while learning the concept of SDGs. Anyone can enjoy playing the game with no prior knowledge of it or SDGs. On the day, after being split into breakout rooms, participants will get to challenge the “theme” of the game together.
What solutions will you find to the world’s problems? Let’s all think and work together!
And this time, we will have the cooperation of the games inventors; Kanazawa Institute of Technology’s student project “SDGs Global Youth Innovators (GYIs)”. As the event is online, we are able do a live collaborative event together. This will be a great chance to mix with students from the Kanazawa Institute of Technology too.
So don’t wait, sign up today!

Not only making the games, but by holding the workshop using the game and through developing the card application, GYI tries to spread the SDGs to various people.
