This Year’s Holiday Gift

This Year’s Holiday Gift is a Fun Mix of Joy of Reading, Avocados and SDGs

At HOLMRIS B8, we’re passionate about creating room for people – in our services to businesses, hotels, the care sector and schools and universities. We are also committed to taking responsibility and strategic action towards achieving UN Sustainable Development Goal no. 12 on responsible consumption and production. And we want to engage schoolchildren throughout Denmark in this goal.

We have therefore teamed up with Danish author Jesper Tornbjerg, who has written a series of children’s books on the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

With our holiday donation, he will be able to send, in January 2023, three copies of the book on Goal 12, Victoria og Avocado-mysteriet (Victoria and the Avocado Mystery), to all 2,300 primary schools in Denmark.

Watch the video (in Danish) in which Jesper Tornbjerg explains more about the book and about the online portal full of teaching resources:

We hope that these books and this excellent collaboration, which also ties in with our focus on Goal 17 on partnerships for action, can help make reading enjoyable, learning fun and raise children’s awareness of how we can all be part of the solution.

With this gift, we wish you and your loved ones a wonderful holiday season and all the best in the new year.
