IFLA is building a new strategy from the bottom up, one that will be a source of inspiration for its key actions. By contributing to the IFLA Global Vision Ideas Store, you have the opportunity to help define the future directions of IFLA. Everyone is welcome to contribute ideas that will help define the strategy. Our online platform for collecting ideas is available in all seven IFLA languages and submissions can be made in any of those languages.

The challenges facing the library field from ever-increasing globalisation can only be met and overcome by an inclusive, global response from a united library field. This is why IFLA has engaged thousands of librarians and library friends in IFLA’s Global Vision discussion – a venture that will generate a united library field roadmap for the future.

There has never been such an initiative before, which gives every single librarian in the world the chance to contribute. With feedback and input from 190 UN Member States, we are already on the best way to create together, with you, the Global Vision of a strong and united library field powering literate informed and participative societies.

It’s our vision, our future!
