Full Report

Prepared by the EBLIDA Secretariat in collaboration with the National Library of Latvia

The Agenda 2030 on sustainable development is the main strand of the EBLIDA 2022-2025 Strategic Plan and our commitment towards SDGs remains unabated”, says Ton van Vlimmeren, President EBLIDA.

EBLIDA does not wish to limit its work to storytelling alone; the Report explores best practices, simulations, and practical know-how. Country profiles are a model for EBLIDA members not included in this report and for any library willing to pursue sustainable development goals in libraries. “The Synthesis shows very clearly how libraries perceive SDGs and how libraries are perceived in the society. Each country profile is a sort of Library Manifesto on sustainable development at national or local level”, maintains Ton van Vlimmeren, President EBLIDA.

The 2nd report is another step undertaken by EBLIDA in its European, project-oriented and fundraising approach. “All library organisations are now setting SDGs as a priority in their current work plans and we are extremely happy to support the EBLIDA approach, which is valid both for small and big libraries, whether they are public, university, school or national”, adds Katrina Kukaine, Director, Development Department, National Library of Latvia. Since 2019, EBLIDA has taken a practical approach to implementing SDGs in libraries. “We record stories having received the Sello award in Spain, libraries included in Bulgarian and German cultural routes, waste disposal activities in Danish libraries and other small, but popular projects which have received funding from local, national or European institutions.”, adds Giuseppe Vitiello, EBLIDA Director.

The EBLIDA Second European Report on Sustainable Development and Libraries is a companion report to the European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF) 2021-2027: a Guide for library applicantsand The European Structural and Investment Funds 2021-2027 report.
