The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), also known as the Global Goals, were adopted by the United Nations in 2015 as a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure that by 2030 all people enjoy peace and prosperity.
As part of Manchester University Press’ commitment to UN’s 17 goals for sustainable development, we have put together the following reading list containing OPEN ACCESS BOOKS which fit into the aim of the goals. We believe in helping our readers find out more about pressing societal issues such as climate change, gender equality and reduced inequalities.
All of the books listed below are free to access via the manchesterhive platform which celebrates its fifth anniversary this week.
