Through a unique collaboration with students at the Stockholm School of Economics, MAG launches a special quiz in New QuizDuel with the aim of increasing knowledge about the UN's global goals for sustainable development.
Stockholm, Sweden - 15 April 2021 - As part of it’s ambition towards sustainability, MAG Interactive has started a unique collaboration with students at the Stockholm School of Economics to develop a special quiz for New QuizDuel based on the UN's global goals for sustainable development.
The “Sustainability Challenge” launches in the Swedish version of New QuizDuel on 16 April and aims to promote knowledge of the UN's 17 goals for global sustainability. The quiz was developed by six students in the Business & Economics program at the Stockholm School of Economics together with New QuizDuel’s Swedish content creator.
“Global Challenges is a significant part of the bachelor's program at the School of Economics, and the final course aims to create a project that contributes to achieving one or more of the UN's global sustainability goals and 2030 Agenda. We want to explore new ways to make sustainability facts a natural part of general education, and we believe that MAG and New QuizDuel are a perfect partner with their engaging platform and great reach”, says Jacob Lundquist, student of the Business & Economics program at Stockholm School of Economics.
MAG has previously worked with, among other things, climate compensation for air travel and server operation and has programs for leasing electric cars and electric bicycles. MAG is also a part of the UN’s Environment Programme, Playing For The Planet Alliance, an initiative to help take action on the climate crisis through play.
“At MAG, we work actively for sustainability and we also want to contribute to increasing knowledge about the UN’s goals. New QuizDuel is a very nice way to do that; it's fun to quiz while learning new things. When the students from the School of Economics contacted us, we thought their project would fit perfectly as a special quiz in New QuizDuel. These students inspire us to do more for sustainability in the future”, says Louise Carell, Product Lead of New QuizDuel.
