In Italy, on 30th October, a meeting preparatory to the national workshops has been organised in collaboration with “Rete delle Reti” (EBLIDA Members: AIB and CSBNO); the national workshop will be organised later in December. Gianni Stefanini, Valentina BondesanSimona Villa (representing CSBNO) and Cecilia Cognigni (representing AIB) attended the meeting together with Giuseppe Vitiello (EBLIDA Director).

This workshop aims at identifying SDGs that are relevant for a national library strategy; the good news is that one of the four priorities in the Italian ESIF 2021-2027 is “Culture as a vehicle for Social Cohesion”.

Archived project
The ADELE project was designed to empower libraries in the digital era by making staff and managers aware of the needs they have to face to drive change within their organisation. To do so, the project developed a free self-evaluation tool and training opportunities to help libraries reflect on how they use and where they can further integrate digital technologies to improve their services.
Project
The project will use books as a mean to reflect on one of the topics above-mentioned: youth from all the countries involved will be tasked with reading the same book/books, and this will be the opportunity to spark interactive moments and exchanges between them. We will work with young students (age 15 to 19) from at least 4 different European countries. The project will be the opportunity for them to reflect and express their opinions on the topic selected.

Project
The project aims to create a safe space for immigrant women, age 25-to 50, inside libraries. Women coming from immigrant backgrounds are often at the receiving end of discrimination and inequality, and they struggle to find recognition and acceptance in the territories they reside in: this reality is particularly true in Italy.
