Webinar recap: Digital Badges and Micro-credentials
- 25 May 2023
Can libraries afford to wait for others to fix the world while toxic waste, climate change and pollution harm our environment? How much of a difference can we make anyway? This webinar will aim to raise ambitions for greener library buildings, provide examples of how library services can lead by example as sustainably managed organisations and highlight the opportunities to work in partnership with users to work together and move towards a smarter, sustainable world. The presentation will draw on examples from Europe and Hong Kong to illustrate good practice in academic libraries, covering library building design, communication with users and applications of management information to improve sustainability. Spoiler alert – whilst this webinar may not have all the answers to the questions above, the conclusions will suggest there is hope.
