We're already well into the United Nations High-Level Political Forum in New York, with our team of librarians from four different continents hard at work ensuring that governments understand the potential of libraries to deliver on the Sustainable Development Goals. But what goals did they have in coming to the Forum?
We have an exciting programme that will allow delegates to reflect upon and celebrate our accomplishments, renew friendships, extend their networks, and jointly explore current and future directions.
IFLA has prepared analysis of the set of Voluntary National Reviews of implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals being presented at this year's UN High-Level Political Forum. It has been another year of above-average numbers of references to libraries, linked to a wider range of SDGs than ever before.
Libraries are well represented at this year's UN High-Level Political Forum! With librarians from four different contents, including six countries which are currently undertaking Voluntary National Reviews, we're in a great position to share experience from the ground, as well as the values that shape our field as a whole.
This week, libraries will be well represented at the United Nations High-Level Political Forum in New York. We'll be organising an event with the UN Library, engaging closely with national delegations, and playing an active part in plenary sessions and workshops. To get to know the people speaking up for libraries there, today we publish the first in a series sharing their experience and ideas.
