Libraries had a strong presence at the Forum of the Countries of Latin America and the Caribbean on Sustainable Development, through engagement in sessions, direct contact with delegates, and a side-event focused on how libraries empower people to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.
IFLA will be well represented at the Forum of the Countries of Latin American and Caribbean Forum on Sustainable Development on 25-28 April.

Join us for a side-event to the UN Science, Technology and Innovation Forum on 3 May at 8:30am New York time (see what time this is for you), focusing on how libraries are helping ensure that Open Science is delivering on its potential to deliver sustainable development.
When any type of cultural property disappears, it is a great loss to humanity. However, around the world, cultural objects are at risk of illicit theft and trafficking. This is a complex issue, and working to counter these threats is not a task that one can take on alone. There is a need for collaboration between cultural institutions, like libraries and museums, and with law enforcement, customs organisations, and other stakeholders. IFLA is dedicated to helping protect the world’s cultural heritage, and we work with many partners to build capacity to counter the threat of trafficking.
Esse é o tema do webinar "Bibliotecas: lugares que cuidam das pessoas” organizado pela Seção de Bibliotecas Públicas da IFLA.
The United Nations 2030 Agenda is not just a document for governments, rather it sets out responsibilities for everyone, including libraries! However, it is not always easy to make the connection between high-level policy documents and day-to-day library operations. We interviewed Natalice Cardoso, to find out about her work in engaging libraries in questions around the Agenda and its Sustainable Development Goals
Vivemos tempos conturbados e as pessoas em todo o mundo estão enfrentando diversos tipos diferentes de crises, como a pandemia da Covid-19, incêndios florestais, crise climática, etc. As bibliotecas públicas e suas equipes têm que responder a estes tempos desafiadores.
