About the event
What is the Possible World?
A multiplayer, facilitated online game that simulates taking the “real world” into the future.
This online simulation experience was inspired by the 2030 SDGs Game, - an in-person card game.
What is the Possible World game experience?
It is a tool to discover yourself and to see the possibilities.
In the online game experience, you may be able to uncover what lies underneath your decisions and actions.
The 2020 pandemic has opened the door to many possibilities, and one of them is an online platform in which the game is offered. Similar to the in-person game of 2030 SDGs Game in many ways, this online experience offers new aspects. We would like you to come along to the game experience and to share your discoveries.
The game session takes approximately 2.5 hours, including instructions, playing time, reflection and breaks.
Here are some responses from people who experienced the game.
"It gave me a chance to see new possibilities of change in the world, starting from myself. It was simultaneously fun and profound!"
"We are possibilities, I am a possibility. Excited to be standing at the doorway to a new world."
"It's like they say, ’enlightenment cannot be expressed in words...' . Something new and amazing is growing inside me that I can't yet articulate."
What effect does the game have?
Participants often experience a shift in perspective. Most players finish the game feeling excited, connected and ready to take action. Players often ask, “What can I do next to make a difference?”
Who runs the Possible World?
These game events are organised by P-Lab, and the workshop will be held by Aya Matsuyama and maybe a mystery co-host.
Who can come?
You can! Anyone can!
Seeing is Believing.
