In the Global Goals Challenge, you and your colleagues will meet virtually and compete in trivia knowledge of the Global Goals, while having to generate suggestions for specific actions that contribute lead to achieving the Global Goals in your business. The game can be used regardless of whether or not you have chosen Global Goals.
Our planet is a lovely place, but it is easy to forget how much it has to offer as we are constantly reminded of the challenges we face on a daily basis – from inequality to poverty and climate change. We must preserve all the good that exists in the human race and put an end to all the things that takes hope away from us. That is the reason why the world leaders met in 2015 and launched the 2030 Agenda: 17 Sustainable Development Goals. This is important to all of us. And we are all responsible for being part of the change. But how?
Governments all over the world have already agreed on the goals, and now it’s time for companies to give life to their ideas and solutions. In the Global Goals Challenge, you get to learn the Global Goals in a fun and different way, and come up with very specific and simple suggestions on how you can work with the Global Goals in your particular organization.
After an introduction to the game and the framework, we test the participants knowledge of the Global Goals in a fun and learning way. This is done to set the mood and lower the parades – the Global Goals are not as complicated and unattainable as you would think.
After this, you will have a number of rounds, each dealing with a world goal. The number of rounds depends on the chosen edition and whether or not you have chosen your Global Goals, the number of participants and how much time you have available.
Each round introduces the participants to specific Global Goals – after that, you have to compete on trivial knowledge and actions that can be implemented in your organization. The suggestions are scored according to the likelihood of success – concrete and very simple suggestions that can easily be implemented will therefore prevail over flighty and complex visions.
Global Goals are very much about getting things done. Therefore some of the rounds are “Act now” rounds, where the groups must act on one or more of the Global Goals at once. The best actions are rewarded.
After completing the Global Goals Challenge, you will often have the feeling that the inclusion of the Global Goals is not out of reach. In a fun and competitive way, you get your focus and process kick-started, and in a playful way, you also get a number of ideas for easy implementation in the workplace and/or home workplaces.
The purpose of the game:
- Involve employees in working with the Global Goals.
- Increase employees’ willingness to work with the Global Goals.
- Ensure understanding and support from employees to work on the Global Goals.
- Make the Global Goals accessible in a “harmless” gaming environment.
- Create a sense of community and make people more aware of the company’s direction and values.
- Clarify the Global Goals and how to work with them.
- Turn thoughts into actions.
We take care of the gaming environment from start to finish. The game is facilitated virtually LIVE and our facilitator instructs and guides you as you play. Everything takes place in our online meeting room and no preparation is required for the participants. Participants simply need to have access to a computer with Internet access and a camera.
The game can be used in any organization that wants to get started with the Global Goals – and at the same time get employees involved in this process. In a fun, learning and competitive way, the focus will be on specific actions in the company. If Global Goals have already been chosen, the game will focus on these goals.
The participants become smarter and more involved in the work of the Global Goals, creating a common frame of reference.
All employees can participate in the Global Goals Challenge equally.
