The first-ever conference that combines game playing and policy making got underway in the German city of Bonn this Wednesday.

The Global Festival of Ideas for Sustainable Development aims to promote new thinking for a better world.

A live simulation game lies at the heart of the event, with participants collaborating on ways to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in a hypothetical country.

The 17 SDGs seek to create a more just and equitable world by 2030, including an end to extreme poverty and quality education for all.

Reem Abaza is at the conference and spoke to the Lord Mayor of Bonn, Ashok Sridharan.
