The Planet is out of balance. Climate disruption is one of the biggest crises humanity is facing, requiring a profound transformation of the way we live. All business models need to be rethought, and the book industry is no exception. A clinical look at the value chain is fundamental at a time when carbon neutrality is imperative for all. How can books contribute to this planetary mission while reinforcing the power of people? We are more than 8 billion voices inhabiting this planet. Thousands and thousands remain unheard. Silenced by the force of intolerance and the power of prejudice. Books are powerful antidotes but they can gain even more strength. Exploring the path of representation is one of the great journeys on the table, not only of those who lead the way, but also of those who write and read. Will books be able to transform our world towards the SDGs?
