Contemporary children’s literature has developed a growing interest in the interconnectedness between humans and the environment in the ongoing exchange and negotiation of ways to be in the world. These new directions in children’s literature consequently challenge teachers of children’s literature in higher education. The project Green Dialogues aims to increase research, student, and staff mobility, and, through innovative dialogic teaching practices, to apply and exchange theoretical and didactic perspectives on children’s literature relevant to respond to the UN’s 17 sustainable development goals (SDG).
