The Pearson-Betwyll project 2020: Sustainable Horizons

The Pearson-Betwyll collaboration goes on with Sustainable Horizons, a new multidisciplinary project to reflect on the concept of sustainability in its broader meaning, ranging from the environmental issue to responsible citizenship and demographic coexistence. From 12 March to 30 Aprile 2020, we will read and comment on a selection of classical and contemporary texts by different authors – from Greta Thunberg to Galileo Galilei, just to mention a few – using our social reading method to stir a collective debate on the future of our planet. 

Sustainable Horizons is a limited enrollment transition project, awaiting the launch of the new Pearson-Betwyll app for social reading. An interdisciplinary tool, especially designed for schools, that will be available for the 2020 back-to-school season and integrated with many Pearson textbooks starting from the 2020-2021 school year

Digital technologies offer people greater reading opportunities, but tend to promote a superficial attitude towards reading. Commenting on a text in 140 characters forces instead to focus on that specific content, looking for what’s more relevant and, thus, examining the text and the author to identify its deep meanings. Our ambition is to recreate Euphemia’s square, where rather than the merchants imagined by Calvino, it’s readers who meet. And, thanks to books and their shared reading, they become more careful, aware and engaged individuals, who are also members of a constantly evolving community.
