33 Things to Talk to Kids About Global Challenges helps parents to have family conversations about issues that current and future generations will be facing, and the goals for a brighter future for all humans. No child is too young to make a difference! Why not give them that confidence early on? We owe it to our children to raise them to become global citizens who are aware of the interrelations between everything that is happening in the world.

In 2015 the United Nation's released the Sustainable Development Goals, also called the Global Goals, that will get world leaders to commit to a better and more sustainable world. Based on those goals, it depends on every human being--young and old, rich and poor--to help save the world. The book "33 Things to Talk to Kids About Global Challenges" gives families an understanding of the Global Goals and the issues that the goals want to improve.
