Help the United Nations to save the world!
On 25 September 2015, world leaders at the UN adopted 17 Sustainable Development Goals. These new Goals, which universally apply to all people, are a call to take action to end all forms of poverty, fight inequalities and tackle climate change, while ensuring no one is left behind. For the Goals to be reached, it is not just the actions of governments and businesses that are important - you can help the UN save the world, too!
Produced in support of the United Nations, 17 Ways to Save the World is an accessible guide to how you can help the UN achieve their 17 Sustainable Development Goals. As well as charting the global issues identified in the Goals, this book will demonstrate how small lifestyle changes can help in solving the world's biggest issues, empowering you to actively pursue a more sustainable future.
This book is the perfect tool for kids aged 9+ looking to make a meaningful difference. Immersive artwork and sensitive text presents serious, worldwide problems in an compassionate manner, encouraging both empathy and action.
