The simulation game "sustain2030" is made available to lecturers at TU Dortmund University by the Sustainability Office. Participants learn about the interdependencies between the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and gain insight into complex decision-making systems through play.
In the simulation game "sustain2030", participants learn about the interrelationships between the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and gain insight into complex decision-making processes through play. During the simulation, participants take on the role of a stakeholder in a fictitious citizens' council supporting the federal government and make coordinated, political decisions as a group. This group of five to 15 people considers the period from 2020 to 2030. The impacts of the group decisions are simulated step-by-step with respect to the SDGs. After each simulation step, the effects of the decisions are observed. If necessary, decisions made can be adjusted by appropriate measures in order to achieve the SDGs. In all decisions, care must be taken to not lose sight of any of the SDGs, preventing critical states and staying within the financial limits. The right balance needs to be found here.
The simulation game is made available to the lecturers of TU Dortmund University in a Moodle room after the introduction. If you are interested in an introduction to "sustain2030", please contact the Sustainability Office. There is a campus license and every lecturer may use the simulation for teaching. The optional materials for the simulation can be borrowed from the Sustainability Office. If you have any questions, please feel free to use the corresponding forums in the Moodle room or contact the Sustainability Office.
The simulation game can be played in German as well as in English.
