Speaker: Dan Hackborn

Due to the global and interconnected nature of anthropogenic climate change, conceptualizing what meaningful climate action might look like within your own institution can often be overwhelming. In this workshop we will introduce a tool, the Mitigation-Adaptation-Community-Knowledge (MACK) conceptual model, for situating climate action within local library contexts. Alongside a guiding case study, we will illustrate how this model can be applied by library decision makers to clarify and analyse their institution’s unique capacities for climate action amidst their community’s specific needs. Join us for this 90-minute, interactive workshop online!

Dan Hackborn is a library worker from Treaty 6 Alberta, a member of the Canadian Federation of Library Association’s Climate Action Committee, and a Master of Library and Information Studies candidate specializing in the intersection between library practice and systemic climate action.
