African children’s books on sustainability and equality to be highlighted through latest SDG book Club

The new, multilingual initiative sees book sector organisations from across the African continent come together and commit to augmenting the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals Book Club with a collection of English, French, Arabic and Kiswahili books about the different goals for children.

The book club will launch on World Book Day (23 April 2021) and will feature quality African books that deal with the themes of the SDGs. Submissions are open now at and a selection committee formed by the different partners will pick a shortlist for each SDG.

The African SDG Book Club follows the recent launches of clubs in Norway, Indonesia, Portugal and Brazil. The world’s publishing community through the IPA supports the SDGs as an investment in future generations of leaders, innovators and agents of change. Read further.
