The United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were adopted in 2015 as the universal call to action to end poverty and hunger, protect the planet and ensure inclusion, peace and prosperity for all by 2030. However, without active individual involvement, Agenda 2030 is not capable of delivering wide scale impact. Understanding of the SDGs and actions towards achieving them should be integrated in everyday lives of ordinary people. We need ways to reach people in ways that speak to them and offer content in a form that allows them to engage. In this interview we hear from DANA KLISANIN, a WFSF Board member, psychologist and futurist who has designed a game that aims to educate and empower youth around the SDGs.
