SDG Book Club: Brazilian Chapter
The SDG Book Club is a project created by the United Nations (UN) with the support of the International Publishers Association (IPA) that aims to use books as tools to encourage children between the ages of 6 and 12 to get in touch with principles of the United Nations Organization's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), of the 2030 Agenda. For this purpose, publications that address themes related to the SDGs are selected around the world.
In Brazil, the project began in 2020, when the Brazilian Book Chamber (CBL) joined forces with the National Foundation for Children’s and Young People’s BooksFNLIJ — the Brazilian section of the International Board on Books for Young People (IBBY) — and the Brazilian Federation Associations of Librarians, Information Scientists and Institutions (FEBAB) to carry out the selection process of works in the country. After the registration of more than 1,100 titles, 175 Brazilian literary works were selected.
These titles can be checked in the “Brazil Chapter”, a catalogue supported by Brazilian Publishers – a program for the internationalization of Brazilian editorial content developed by CBL in partnership with the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (ApexBrasil). Developed in Portuguese and English, the publication is divided into 17 chapters, specific to each objective. At the end, there is a list with the names of writers, illustrators, translators and editors. Versions in both languages and in PDF and ePub formats are available at the links below:
