Connecting teachers and students with SGDs by a gamified platform

The Global Citizenship Program (GCP) promotes the Sustainable Development Goals (SGD) in the formal education system of Buenos Aires City, through quality education enhanced by digital technologies. This initiative offers a learning gamification environment, interactive and participative proposals, and mission-based projects to create awareness and mobilization on the SDGs to build a fairer, more equitable and sustainable present and future.

GCP offers an original immersive experience that inspires teachers and students to be key players in their educational processes. Teachers are challenged to embrace innovative teaching strategies and students learn through play, carrying out missions, devising strategies, and leading meaningful projects.

GCP engages students in missions, adventures and disruptive educational experiences for raising awareness of global challenges and transforming our world into a better place for everyone. Lots of multimedia resources are available for teachers and students to make the most of their learning experience and to share their outcomes with other peers and schools.

GCP had been created in 2018 with the aim of connect people with the SDGs in the formal educational system and to get K12 children to reflect on socio-environmental problems that affect them daily and develop skills to understand and face these “glocal” problems devising and designing creative solutions.

In this way we find an extraordinary opportunity to improve a public policy oriented to integral literacy, digital and sexual education, construction of a global citizenship, gender equality as core ideas. Today all these lines of public policy fail to articulate and experience effective practices in classrooms in a systematic and systemic way to improve educational quality and social promotion.
