“Let’s Go Green!”: The second international conference on green libraries on 9/10 November 2023

After the first Let’s Go Green! Conference was organized in November 2018., the National and University Library in Zagreb will be hosting the second edition of the international conference on green libraries from 9 to 10 November 2023. The conference programme will include presentations by internationally acclaimed researchers, experts and activists in a wide range of green fields.

The conference is a part of the Green Library for Green Croatia Project, the Library’s ongoing project launched in 2016 with the aim of raising awareness about the significance of sustainable development, the protection and preservation of natural resources and green and sustainable libraries. The members of the international library community and other conference participants will have an opportunity to become better acquainted with the latest developments in the green libraries field and learn more about examples of good practice in this context.

The programme of the conference will present guidelines for the international library community in relation to the growing need for libraries to provide services and organize programme concerning preservation of the environment and sustainable development. Through enabling the exchange of insights concerning previous, current and predicted impact of the programs of heritage institutions on their users, the conference will also offer possibilities for the strengthening of the existing cooperation between institutions in the heritage sector.

The conference, which is supported by the Croatian Ministry of Culture and Media and by the IFLA Environment, Sustainability and Libraries Special Interest Group ENSULIB, is co-organized through the Library’s cooperation with the Croatian Library Association’s Commission for Green Libraries.

More information about the conference will be available soon on the official conference’s web pages.
