FOL presents its scientific dissemination book “Goiz bat Tuni-Ontzin” in a literature congress
Last week, from October 20 to 22, the 1st International Congress on Children’s and Young People’s Literature organized by the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU) was held online. A discussion forum was created on the combination of Children’s and Young People’s Literature and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). Children’s and Young People’s Literature and the SDG were both integrated since education is one of the best ways to achieve changes in attitudes and habits, and childhood is the best age range to create awareness about ODS and their implications.
The scientific dissemination book titled “Goiz Bat Tuni-Ontzin” was presented in the congress by its authors, FOL member Iratxe Rubio and Amelia Benito del Valle (Education Faculty of Bilbao, UPV/EHU). It is a literary work that addresses SDG 13 “Climate Action” and 14 “Life Below Water”. The book was described as a didactic proposal and as an effective tool to understand the social context in which it takes place. Its literary content is an aesthetic and ideological vehicle to convey the concepts of sustainable fishing and global warming to elementary school readers. There is a need for scientific findings to be understood and brought closer to childhood and for this, what better than the story format.
