The UN sustainable development agenda cannot succeed without collaboration, a British development expert attending a global conference in Germany said on Friday.

Ishbel Matheson, the Director of Communications for the Overseas Development Institute was speaking to Cristina Silveiro on day three of the Global Festival of Ideas for Sustainable Development, taking place in Bonn.

Young people trying their hand at the Hive Mind 2030 app, a real-time policy simulation game, came to that realization after trying to go it alone, Ms Matheson said.

To play the game, she told Cristina they have to find new ways of addressing the world's development challenges, convince people their ideas are good and make trade-offs.
