Club will support the UN's Sustainable Development Goals
The International Publishers Association (IPA) is joining forces with the United Nations to launch a children's book club supporting the the UN's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The club will offer a reading list of titles related to each of the 17 SDGs.
Michiel Kolman, IPA president, said: "Imagine children in Asia reading about diversity and inclusion in Chinese; kids in South America enjoying Spanish language books on the importance of water in their lives. All children should have the opportunity to learn about and shape their world through the prism of the SDGs. We are convinced that the SDGs are attainable by 2030 and we hope that we can contribute to achieving this important goal."
