In our fifth Reading for Change event, we explore Rinchin’s I Will Save My Land as an entry point to SDG 7 Affordable and Clean Energy. I Will Save My Land is a picture book that tells the story of a young girl, Mati, who is determined to save her and her family’s plot of land from the impending development of a coal mine. Join the discussion with your questions and reflections on December 5, 2020 at 6:30 pm IST.
Join author Rinchin and Shripad Dharmadhikary, an activist, researcher, and coordinator of the Manthan Adhyayan Kendra, in conversation about I Will Save My Land and the conflicts and concerns around affordable and clean energy. Get your copy of the book, and join us for the online event.
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.
