About Reading for Change
Books have been our windows to the world for the past several centuries. When we talk about the future of the planet, books can continue to help us understand the multiplicity of approaches needed for our journey ahead.
In this series of events, we look at the the UN Sustainable Development Goals — the SDGs — as facets of our daily lives and not as distant landmarks in space and time. Over the next year join Champaca Bookstore, Science Gallery Bengaluru and Bengaluru Sustainability Forum for book readings & discussions that link the UN SDGs with our everyday lives, through a curated collection of books.
