Quest is an interactive, adventurous game in which participants have to solve tasks in order to proceed to the final and win a prize.

Rationale:

Sustainable Development Goals are a global vision of humanity, which were adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on 25 September 2015. Global Goals are aimed to provide integration on economic growth, social justice and rational use of natural resources. Young people are active drivers of change in local communities. They play an important role in engaging people at the grassroots level and communicating Sustainable Development Goals to a wider society. Thus, communicating SDGs to young people is an investment in the future of the country.
