"For Our Planet" -
A book on SDGs through stories
Being a SDG Child Ambassador, I decided to write the book ‘FOR OUR PLANET’ with a strong vision to create awareness among kids of my age about the UNITED NATIONS Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs). These 17 goals are like a big to-do-list for the world to end poverty, protect the planet and to ensure that by the year 2030, all people enjoy peace and prosperity.
As it seems a complicated topic for us kids, after thorough research, I tried to put it in simple words through interesting stories which we all can relate.
In this book, I have suggested some activities and lifestyle changes also with the idea that sustainable lifestyle would be much easier for kids to adapt to, rather than adults. Our little sustainable steps can make huge positive impact on our mother earth.
I would love to read about the lifestyle changes you brought out after reading my book along with photos of the different activities, you all did.

I humbly dedicate this book to UAE’s sustainability initiatives,
as UAE being the host of 28th United Nations Global Climate Summit (COP28) and
2023 being declared as YEAR OF SUSTAINABILITY.
“Influencing others to do good is quite important as we can ask others to do good, but cannot order them to do their best. But we can influence people to do their best by providing strong motivating examples and that’s what I am trying to do.”
