We were delighted to start off the new year and new decade with a workshop hosted jointly with the IEEE Power & Energy Society to help our members better understand how each of us can contribute to reaching the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals. More than 30 of us came together in Geneva on January 30, 2020 to play a facilitated, card-based game invented in Japan that simulated what the world could look like in 2030. We’re pleased to say that we created a pretty balanced world and had very interesting and reflective conversations during the subsequent discussion and apero.
As a result of the evening we also provided lifetime access to clean drinking water for 1-2 persons in a remote village in El Salvador.
The IBN is very grateful for the sponsorship of SCB Group, McCarthy’s and McGonigle Watches.
Further information on the game can be found here.
