About the project
Swe|Eng

Literature can be a powerful force for good. As a response to the climate crisis, the Gothenburg Book Fair has asked renowned authors from around the world to write protest signs that are available for anyone to use. So that you can tackle the greatest challenge of our time, with words from the greatest writers of our time.

All signs are free to download and use in protests. But please consider donating to our partner the Swedish Society for Nature Conservation. To learn more about the Gothenburg Book Fair and this year’s theme – the climate crisis – please visit our website bokmassan.se. Experience all Hope Signs at our exhibition at the Gothenburg Book Fair September 22-25.
