To help teaching children around the world about the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in a simple and child-friendly way, the UN Regional Information Centre for Western Europe has developed the Go Goals! – SDG board game, targeted mainly at children aged 8 to 10 years.
Designed to be fun and engaging, the “do it yourself game” is available on a dedicated website in English, French, Finnish, Norwegian, Swedish, Slovenian, Chinese, Dutch, German, Greek, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese. And the best thing: it is entirely free to play! More versions are soon to be found online. All you need is access to the internet, a printer, a pair of scissors, some tape, and you can start playing!
The game may be used not only to teach and learn about the Sustainable Development Goals. It is also a perfect tool to encourage the young generation to shape their future. Our current ways of producing and consuming are not sustainable, however, it is never too early (or too late!) to learn how to change our habits.
The game helps children understand the Sustainable Development Goals; how the global aims impact kids’ lives and what they can do every day to help achieve the 17 Goals by 2030. The game can also be used as a tool to learn a foreign language. Children are encouraged to develop their own set of questions and to discuss the ways in which they can implement the SDGs at home and at school.
The team at UNRIC is looking forward to receiving feedback, pictures, videos, questions etc., and open to new language versions. You can write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
