Bureau 2030 joined our collective of partners in December 2022. We were very eager to hear about their experiences with the platform in the first six months of their partnership. Spoiler alert: they already completed their first run of the Sustainability Challenge with the employees of the municipality of Papendrecht (NL)!
It is safe to say that they are more than only consultants. TSA is an all-around player: they have founded a foundation, they regularly organize events around climate and sustainability and they create a podcast in their own recording studio. With the foundation, NL CO2 Neutraal, they offer a network to companies to motivate and inspire each other to reach their internal sustainable goals. The foundation organizes events that are interactive, innovative, and fun.
But first of all, The Sustainable Advisors (TSA) is a consultancy firm.
The UNSSC, the United Nations System Staff College, has partnered with The 2B Collective, to develop the My Sustainable Living Challenge (MSLC): an innovative gamified learning path, designed to nudge behavioral change towards sustainable living.
We talked to the UNSSC after the launch of the MSLC to discuss the overall experience, which gave us an insight into the results, real-life experiences, and successes.
More than a year after their gamified learning program, Vattenfall NL’s employees are still actively thinking about sustainability in their life.
A frontrunner project. That's what PHI Factory calls the gamified learning program The Sustainable Games ran for all employees of European energy supplier Vattenfall. Under the product name PHI Accelerator, the consultancy has been developing online learning programs on sustainability through gamification since 2018. For six weeks, all employees participate in an online program in which they learn, collaborate, carry out assignments and engage in mutual conversations. Tailored to the objective of the respective organization. In Vattenfall's case: a fossil-free life within one generation. In the spring of 2021, the game went live: all employees in the Netherlands participated with their teams in the online learning program 'The Sustainable Games'.
For many organizations, gamified learning platform is a new, innovative way to get big groups of people to learn, act as a collective, and accelerate their sustainability goals. And as always, innovations raise questions. What is the actual impact of gamified learning? How do you engage people to play? Does it lead to a more sustainable mind shift?
