The United Nations SDG International eTournament 2020 was held in January 2020. The eTournament attracted 416 students from 42 countries/regions to join.

84 teams of 4 or 5 students were formed at the beginning of the eTournament. The eTournament consisted of 2 stages — in Stage 1 (5 days), the teams got familiar with their teammates and the game, and worked out the strategies for the PaGamO game in Stage 2. 207 students finished the second stage (7 days), during which they competed with others on PaGamO by answering questions related to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals.

About the eTournament

There are 3 objectives for this eTournament:

  1. Students from different parts of the world, who do not know each other before joining the eTournament, learn to work together online (Online Teams) to complete specific tasks.
  2. The main topic set for these Online Teams consists of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). They are to learn about these SDGs through the game platform, PaGamO.
  3. Students must also learn about the different cultures and background of their teammates. These Online Teams will make use of synchronous online communications to discuss issues relating to one SDG in details.
