Gamifying the Sustainable Development Goals

When it comes to the environment, it can be a challenge for us to go beyond education, through to engagement, all the way to advocacy. Join us for this dynamic, collaborative workshop session where you will experience a new set of tools: first as a participant, then as a leader.

UNESCO have created flashcards on the Sustainable Development Goals. This simple tool is a perfect opportunity for science engagement organisations to engage the public alongside community stakeholders. The cards contain more than 200 questions ranging from systems approach to specific aspects of sustainability, allowing participants to explore each of the 17 SDGs in question-focused small group conversations, with the possibility of collaboratively identifying actions and solutions aimed at implementing the global goals in ways that are relevant to their lives and their communities. This is an effective way of engaging our communities on SDGs and creating a local sense of ownership.

We will first experience this training tool in action. Next we break into groups to brainstorm how we could apply these tools to our own work as educators. Finally each group will present their concept, opening up the discussion on ways to push the boundaries to real community engagement.

To fully benefit from this unusual workshop, we invite you to arrive right on time, stay together to enjoy a coffee break in the Gamelab and get back to sharing concept and brainstorming until 17:00.

Outcomes: what will participants get from this session? Skills, knowledge, experience etc.

A new tool to apply to their own work as educators
A chance to collaborate with colleagues to develop new workshop concepts
Food for thought on the tools we use to engage with our local communities
Better understanding of the SDGs, their interconnections and links to our everyday lives.

Gender and the Law of the Sea book launch

In Gender and the Law of the Sea a distinguished group of law of the sea and feminist scholars critically engages with one of the oldest fields of international law. While the law of the sea has been traditionally portrayed as a technical, gender-neutral set of rules, of concern to States rather than humans, authors in this volume persuasively argue that critical feminist perspectives are needed to question the underlying assumptions of ostensibly gender-neutral norms. Coming at a time when the presence of women at sea is increasing, the volume forcefully and successfully argues that legal rules are relevant to ensure gender equality and the empowerment of women at sea, in an effort to render law for the oceans more inclusive.


This panel discussion will feature Dr. Irini Papanicolopulu, Associate Professor of International Law at the University of Milano-Bicocca and Editor of Gender and the Law of the Sea and Dr. Gina Heathcote, Reader in Gender Studies and International Law, Programme Convenor of the MA in Gender Studies and Law, and Programme Convenor of the LLM in Law and Gender Studies at the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London. 


This event is hosted by the Women, Peace and Security program at AC4 and co-hosted by the Center for Gender and Sexuality Law at the Law School and the Columbia Water Center
