SDG Book Club @MYCPB
What are the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG)?
The 17 Sustainable Development Goals were adopted by world leaders at the historic Sustainable Development Summit in September 2015. It is recognized that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.
What is the SDG Book Club?
The SDG Book Club, launched in April 2019, is based on a reading list of titles aimed at children age 6-12, to teach them about the importance of the Sustainable Development Goals
‘Reading and learning are essential to children’s growth and development; stories can fuel their imagination and raise awareness of new possibilities. As young people everywhere are a key asset in achieving the Goals, the SDG Book Club aims to encourage them to learn about the Goals in a fun, engaging way and help them realise what actions they can take, empowering them to make a difference.’
