Applied literature is a discipline that adopts a moral-philosophical approach for sustainable development (SD). Its mission is to make a literary contribution to the real world, with the aim of creating a better tomorrow. Making use of the global movement along with the United Nations campaigns for SD, applied literature will re-examine current literary roles and values and set a responsible standard. This essay introduces a new conceptualization of applied literature and presents a case study that took place in the author’s classroom.
