Celebrating Earth Day

51 years: Restore our EARTH

Apr 26, 2021
8:00 AM - 9:30 AM
Free

Hosted by Edward Junhao Lim

Webinar on educating and promoting understanding for Climate Action. The United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 13 “Climate Action” is a call for immediate action by all to lower greenhouse emissions, build resilience and improve education on climate change. Affordable, scalable solutions such as renewable energy, clean technologies are available to enable countries to leapfrog to greener, more resilient economies.

Libraries have a key role to play to build a more sustainable world. Many libraries are facing crises related to climate change: snow, floods, smoke from fires in the mountains near the community, mold, hurricanes- and many communities they serve are experiencing these crises as well. 

Join our event to hear from librarians in different regions of the world who are helping communities. 

This webinar is co-organized by IFLA’s Continuing Professional Development and Workforce Learning (CPDWL) and New Professionals Special Interest Group (NPSIG).
