Hundreds of Portuguese and Brazilian children’s books @ SDG Book Club
Following submissions of over 1000 titles, book sector organisations from Brazil and Portugal have announced lists to augment the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals Book Club with a collection of lusophone books about the different goals for children. Brazil has published 175 books in this category.
Vitor Tavares, President CBL said, “The book is an essential source of ideas for human development and all aspects that make us live in harmony with the planet. Encouraging the reading of books that address issues such as equality and sustainability is like planting a seed of transformation in the world. The Portuguese Language SDG Book Club is a great initiative in this regard.”
While, Bruno Duarte Eiras, Deputy Director, General-Directorate for Book, Archives and Libraries – Portugal said, “The UN SDG Book Club is a great opportunity to engage with readers about SDG and 2030 Agenda principles. With this initiative we can contribute to fulfill the 2030 Agenda motto “Leaving no one behind” through reading and literature. Books have the power to help us understand the world around us and each other.”
