The book produced in May 2022 becomes a crucial document on the topic of environmental sustainability and is dedicated to El Aleph. Festival of Art and Science, which this year is entitled "The Frontiers of the Environment". The author is José Gordon, curator of the Festival and expert on the subject, who offers us a fertile and profound panorama on the environmental conditions we live in today and how we could "think of ourselves as a planet". It is true that much remains to be done, but as mentioned in one of the Festival's themes, we need to carry out "actions and measures to preserve our environment". The following books are a significant selection of UNAM's academic and cognitive contributions to aspire to live in a better world.

The Gordon Book (2022), is a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and improve the lives and prospects of people around the world. In 2015, all UN Member States adopted the SDGs as part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which sets out a plan to achieve them within 15 years. Progress is now being made in many places, but overall, policies to achieve them are not yet advancing at the speed or scale needed. Add to this the devastating pandemic that the world has experienced, and the outlook looks bleak. It will therefore be necessary to reinvent ourselves in order to, as mentioned in the latest UN report on the subject, "find paths of transformation in turbulent times".

The defense of the environment in an unfavorable context such as the one that prefigures us, is also the defense of humanity and life itself: values and inclinations framed by the culture of peace that dignify human beings. Among the practices of this safeguard, we take up the objective "Action for the climate", whose routes of action pass through urgent and punctual dispositions that the signatory countries of the Agenda should carry out, among them Mexico: to revert the climatic crisis, which continues exacerbating the frequency and gravity of natural disasters; to reduce the Greenhouse Gases and not to invest in fossil fuels. All of these are concerns and responsibilities of Coyoacán University. Mexico
