UN in your language

How do you explain the SDGs to children?

SDG board game: Go Goals!

To help teach children around the world about the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in a simple and child-friendly way, the UN Regional Information Centre’s staff in Brussels have launched the ‘Go-Goals!’ SDG board game, aimed principally at children aged 8-10.

We hope to engage teachers and parents, asking them to play and use the “Go Goals” game as an educational activity. Designed to be fun and engaging, the game helps children understand the Sustainable Development Goals, how they impact their lives and what they can do every day to help and achieve the 17 goals by 2030.

The game is available on a dedicated website,, in English, French, German and Spanish, and is entirely free to play. Designed as a do it yourself kit, all you need are a printer, a pair of scissors, some tape or glue, and you can start playing.

The team behind the game will be releasing additional language versions in the in the run up to Christmas, including Dutch, Italian and Chinese.

To illustrate the game, UNRIC used illustration of the SDGs by Elyx, the UN’s virtual ambassador, created by renowned French artist YAK.

The team at UNRIC is looking forward to receiving feedback. You can write to us at [email protected] or use the hashtag #SDGGame on social media. We would be delighted to feature you playing the game, so be sure to stay in touch.

Enjoy playing and thank you for making the world a better place!!
