PLAY FOR GOAL 16
PEACE, JUSTICE AND STRONG INSTITUTIONS
WHAT’S THE GOAL?
Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels.
- Develop effective, accountable and transparent institutions at all levels.
- By 2030, significantly reduce illicit financial and arms flows, strengthen the recovery and return of stolen assets and combat all forms of organised crime.
- By 2030, provide legal identity for all, including birth registration.
WHY DOES IT MATTER?
Peaceful, just and inclusive societies are necessary to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). People everywhere need to be free of fear from all forms of violence and feel safe as they go about their lives whatever their ethnicity, faith or sexual orientation.
In order to advance the SDGs we need effective and inclusive public institutions that can deliver quality education and healthcare, fair economic policies and inclusive environmental protection.

DO DEMOCRACY PEACE GAME
by Majken Gilmartin, Denmark
Description of the game:
- In this game we want to illustrate working and taking decisions together
- To reach the Global Goals we need all of us to work together in a peaceful way. In this game let all the players/teams decide on the rules together. And over a few games let them together pick different rules.
- Depending on the amount of players you have, make 2 or more small sided teams from 3 to 6 players on each team. Give the teams 5 minutes to come up with their own 4 rules they would like to use in the game. Have them write it down.
- Give the teams 5 minutes to come up with their own 4 rules they would like to use in the game. Have them write it down.
- When they are finished, get the 2 teams together, and give them a few minutes to explain their rules to each other.
- Then have the teams together pick the 3-5 rules they think are best (pick from both teams rules) and then using those rules in games lasting 5 minutes.
Take a water break and a talk about what rules worked and give them a chance to pick a new combination of rules and play again.
If you have more than 2 teams, make all teams play against each other, give them enough time to pick the rules. Pay attention that it’s not just one person who decide all rule. You can have all players pick their choice so you make sure everyone participate.
Here are some ideas for inspiration:
- Goals count triple if the team holds hand when they score
- If one team scores the other team gets a goal too
- Only one player on each team can run. All other players can only walk
- All players play without shoes.
- You can use both feet and hand.
- Every time a team score – everybody dances for 10 sec and then stand total still
- Players: Depending on the amount of players you have, make 2 or more small sided teams from 3 to 6 players on each team.
- Area: Any size that you have can work.
- Materials: Balls, cones or goals, bibs.
Create Game Situation
There are so many great ways to create a game. Allow the players to be quite creative with this by introducing the goal at the beginning of the match and asking them how this could be included: Do one team have a big goal and the other a small. Do everybody play with a glas of water or change a rule every minute.
A simple way to bring in the Global Goals when playing a match, is that every time a team scores or make a save, or during a water break they can double their points or get a point by stating a Global Goal and what they could do to help promote this in their community. Easiest to play small side games with 3-6 players, so they can hear each other.
You can always have several games going at the same time. There are some rule ideas under Goal 17.
