Shaping a Fairer World is the culmination of young Ayush Chopra's experiences, initiatives, and intense involvement in social transformation. The book underscores that the small role we play , every small change that we make, every small step that we take in making a difference can lead to a more equitable world that provides equal rights and opportunities for all citizens to live, work and prosper. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), set forth by the United Nations, have provided the inspiration and impetus to the author for penning this book.
Ayush’s journey was far from easy. He was average in his studies. Mocked several times by his peers for pursuing higher ideals, he wanted to give up but unwavering support from his parents, teachers and school principal sustained him all along the arduous path to do well in academics as well as contribute his bit to social causes. Ayush’s volunteering efforts received ultimate recognition when he was invited to represent India at the 14th Youth For Human Rights International Summit held at UN headquarters, New York in August 2017.
The book graphically disseminates information about SDGs and Human Rights with engaging design and artwork. In witty, playful and colorfully tabulated content, the book narrates Ayush’s journey as well as the stories of those who have contributed towards new ideas and innovative narratives to effect real change.
