Wrocław, Poland, 21 August 2017—   

Do you want to help shape the future of the library field and be involved in a truly worldwide brainstorm? Today is the day you can play your part in IFLA’s Global Vision discussion, as the online voting platform has now launched during the World Library and Information Congress in Wrocław, Poland.    

You have until 30 September to vote on six key questions that will help create a global library roadmap for the future – your views and your vote matters!

The Global Vision discussion is our chance to engage in innovative conversations to unite the library field in the face of ever-increasing globalisation. With six regional workshops already taken place and incredible ideas shared from almost 140 countries, the Global Vision momentum has already begun. Your involvement is crucial in pushing the conversation forward. You can see why the IFLA Global Vision discussion and your role is needed in our video.

What’s more, it doesn’t matter where you are in the world. Voting options are available in the seven IFLA languages Arabic, Chinese, English, French, German, Russian and Spanish, making the voting process accessible and inclusive for everyone, wherever you happen to be!
