ENVISIONING 2050

Building appreciation for ‘why’ sustainable development and sparking meaningful conversation about ‘how’ we can contribute

What kind of world do you want to see for the children of the future?

Envisioning 2050 is a facilitated virtual workshop that builds participants’ appreciation for why it is critical that we make progressive decisions that meet our needs today, without compromising the needs of future generations, sparking meaningful conversation around how all of us, as individuals and as organisations, can play a role in creating a better world.

The COVID-19 pandemic has set back efforts to achieve Agenda 2030 and the need for change is stronger than ever. No one knows which path the world will take between now and 2050 By the mid-century there will be 9 billion people on the planet and the world is likely to be different in many ways. It is without question that sustainability will continue to be of critical importance. Envisioning 2050 helps us to look beyond the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals and consider balancing people, planet and prosperity as an ongoing global challenge.

Designed to support our client’s organisational initiatives, Envisioning 2050 promotes reflection around what is required to move from current state to transformational change in order to build a better world for all.

SDGs GAME AND IMACOCOLLABO

The 2030 SDGs Game is an in-person, card-based game that simulates taking the “real world” into the year 2030. Designed by Imacocollabo in Japan in 2016, and became a powerful and impactful social phenomenon, earning extensive media coverage. With the pandemic preventing face-to-face games in 2020, a door was opened to experiment with a new online platform using elements from the in-person game and leading to the development of Envisioning 2050.

The name “Imacocollabo” is a blend of several words: Ima, which means “now” (rather than someday), and coco means “here” (rather than somewhere else); the last part evokes both collaboration (“collabo”) and experimentation, such as in a laboratory (“labo”). Imacocollabo is a way of saying, don’t expect someone, some day, to take effective action; instead, take action yourself, right here and right now. This is the ethos that is inspired by the workshops using Imacocollabo games.
