Children’s storybook

The children’s storybook is collection of worldwide tales, popular to different regions. The tales work together and highlight some of the global challenges humanity faces today, such as hunger, human rights, discrimination, education, women empowerment, migration and climate change. The stories we know, therefore, don’t follow the traditional route. Rather, they are adapted to fit into the modern day framework.

The goal of the children’s book is to educate young readers, as well as adults, about the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and how the whole United Nations and other international organizations are working together to combat these world challenges. The global issues that are weaved into the creative storyline, are further explored in more detail in light of the SDGs throughout the book.

The storybook will initially be launched online as an interactive book for the public to engage with, before being released in hard copy. This will allow more room for the public to question and understand how the different SDGs are significant to them. The online launch will be by the end of 2016. If you wish to find out more about the project or how you can get involved in the online interactive copy, please don’t hesitate to contact us on perceptionchange@unog.ch
