SDG Book Club: reading lists for Goal 8

The Sustainable Development Goals Book Club is an important BCBF-supported project that takes its cue from the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

Climate action, quality education, clean energy, and gender equality. How can books engage children on these weighty topics? This is the mission of the SDG Book Club.

SDG Book Club aims to use books as a tool to encourage children ages 6-12 to interact with the principles of the Sustainable Development Goals through a selected monthly list of titles from around the world (see the complete list).

The SDG BookClub reading lists for SDG 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth are now OUT! Teach kids about the importance of safe, well-paying jobs, and the difficulties faced without them

The SDG Book Club makes content available in the six official languages of the United Nations – find here the reading lists in Arabic, Chinese, French, Russian and Spanish.

The books in English for SDG 8 are:
