Our vision, Our future

A strong and united library field powering literate, informed and participative societies

The IFLA Global Vision Report Summary

In March, during the IFLA President’s Meeting in Barcelona, Spain, IFLA Secretary General Gerald Leitner launched the eagerly-awaited IFLA Global Vision Report Summary to an enthusiastic audience. The report contains the top ten highlights and opportunities to emerge out of all the 2017 meetings and voting data. After the successful launch of the Report Summary, Global Vision has kicked off once again in our second phase of Global Vision discussions, this time to create the biggest ideas store for actions!

Kick-off and Regional Workshops

Participant at the IFLA Global Vision Kick Off Workshop

The 2018 Regional Workshops are underway! These interactive and engaging meetings are exploring ideas for actions for a strong and united library field powering literate, informed and participative societies. It’s a hugely exciting and creative time in the Global Vision journey as your ideas for actions will shape the overall Global Vision action plan and IFLA’s future strategy.
