Games 4 The Goals

Training Course

4-12 December 2019 | Cavan, Ireland

Games 4 The Goals is training course aimed at youth workers, trainers, educators and mentors who wish to explore the Sustainable Development Goals through gamification.

Games 4 The Goals (G4TG)is an eight-day training course which aims to develop Global Education competences of youth workers and educators through games-based learning, with a focus on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The idea for this project results from the growing need within development education and youth work organisations to find new and interactive ways to engage with young people on global issues such as poverty, inequality and climate change. Our hope is to harness the power of games to develop media literacy and critical thinking skills, examine values within society and encourage young people to take informed action related to the SDGs.
