    #17booksfor17SDGs Goal 16 : Justice, peace and strong institutions Our pick for the SDG #16 is On Such a Full Sea by Chang-rae Lee. Its Korean title is 만조의 바다에서. The author presents a dystopian vision of the future where society is strictly stratified by class, a future not impossible for today’s readers to envision. This book from 2014 feels relevant now with themes of class hierarchies, racism, environment, public protests, and even a pandemic. “It is 'where we are' that should make all the difference, whether we believe we belong there or not.” To learn more about the Sustainable Development Goal 16 : https://www.un.org/sustainabledevelopment/peace-justice/

    #17booksfor17SDGs Goal 15 : Life on land Our pick for the SDG #15 is 태어납니다 사라집니다. Wildlife populations have fallen by more than two-thirds in less than 50 years according to a major report by the conservation group WWF. Nature is being destroyed by humans at a rate never seen before. In this book, the writer asks us to see the damage human activity is doing to the natural world and to think about the world where there is no birds in the mountain, no fish in the river and no songs heard in the forest.
