Background

A commemoration, a reflection, a time to act Stockholm+50 is a high-level international meeting commemorating 50 years since the seminal 1972 United Nations Conference on the Human Environment, where 113 countries gathered in Stockholm, Sweden and made the environment a pressing global issue for the first time. Fifty years on, Stockholm+50 is a time for bold and immediate action-oriented engagement. It is a time for reflection on humanity’s interconnectedness with nature. We are at a critical juncture: the world needs to urgently harness emerging opportunities for a better future for all on a healthy planet. It is our responsibility to present and future generations.

Fifty years of environmental multilateralism

Multilateralism means working together – across nations, across institutions, across peoples – to find common solutions to challenging problems that spill across boundaries.

All voices are needed

Framed around three Leadership Dialogues, the Stockholm+50 international meeting is an inclusive process to bring in a diversity of voices. The high-level meeting is the culmination of months of consultations with individuals, communities, organizations and governments around the world. The meeting aims to act as a springboard to accelerate the implementation of the UN Decade of Action to deliver the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) along with the 2030 Agenda, the Paris Agreement on climate change, the post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework, the High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development and the President of the General Assembly’s “Moment for Nature”. It will also encourage the adoption of green COVID-19 recovery plans.

What can you do?

Get involved in Stockholm+50 and show how your government, business, group or organization has been part of the global effort to advance the environmental dimension of sustainable development by sharing success stories, spreading awareness of the triple planetary crisis and promoting your community’s commitment to a healthier planet, including a sustainable recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Objectives

Why are games important and we develop, study games for learning? How does research into games help us better to design games that help everyone to change our self and things around us for better sustainable development? We know role of games in our life but not able to utilize the power of games for Sustainability, and SDGs. Thus, discussion on educational games and hands-on activities for SDGs learning, and building sustainable living in the present pandemic time is very crucial for everyone. STI Forum and HLPF this year theme is Science, technology and innovation for building back better from the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) while advancing the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which will address promising developments for accelerating progress towards the SDGs. Building an inclusive and effective path for the achievement of the 2030 Agenda with SDGs 4, 5, 14, 15, and 17 require inclusive, quality education. In this regard, role of STI through learning with games and hands-on activities is very important, and our work showed that students, youth understand, take action for climate change, SDGs.

HRDEF is working on educational Games for Learning Sustainability Concepts, Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by Youth and Community for couple of years and presented our work at the TECH 2017, 2018 UNESCO MGIEP Global conference, UNESCO ESD 2021, and UN HLPF side event 2021. We designed, developed games, hands-on activities for understanding difficult concepts related to sustainable development in an interactive way. Games are unique with their rules, choices, consequences, constraints, good educational games force players to form theories, develop computational thinking. We discuss use of games for students and youth in different settings for advancing SDGs, building sustainability concepts. HRDEF inculcate, motivates students for science, technology, engineering, arts and design, mathematics (STEAM) for 21st Century Sustainable living through intelligent interactive learning systems. Apps on SDGs, COVID-19, hands-on activities, quiz, model making, projects and other creative forms of expressions increased players motivation towards science, SDGs, and sustainability.
