Woodcroft Library, Morphett Vale
Woodcroft Planeteers : An SDG Book Group - Woodcroft Library | Tuesday, 23. February 2021
17 months to read 17 books about the 17 sustainability goals.
Is your child passionate about the environment?
Does your child have a strong sense of social justice?
Then this book group, aimed at children between the ages of 6 -12, will be perfect for them.
On the last Tuesday of each month we will be exploring a different theme from the 17 Sustainable Development Goals that have been agreed on by the United Nations. These themes include zero hunger, life under water, climate, recycling and no poverty among others. Children will be provided with a choice of books on the month's topic which will then be discussed with the group.
"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." -- Maher Nasser, Director of the Outreach Division in the UN Department of Global Communications,
