On 19 August, IFLA’s Environment, Sustainability and Libraries Section (ENSULIB) and Public Libraries Section (PLS) , in collaboration with Bibliotheek Midden-Brabant, LocHal (Tilburg), are organising a Satellite Meeting before the 2023 IFLA World Library and Information Congress  in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

The focus will be on “Libraries as Actors of Climate Empowerment”.  Libraries can empower all members of society to engage in climate action. They are deeply connected to their communities and can reach out to people of all demographics. As such, they are in a unique position to raise public awareness and to create platforms for engagement in climate action for all members of society. This one-day conference will emphasise exchange and interaction between participants. Participants will play an active role in shaping the outcome of the day by coming together, sharing ideas and developing plans. With a mix of keynotes, lightning talks and workshops, this will be an engaging and inspiring day.

Registration is now open!
