Transform libraries – transform societies: Go green

Following the current IFLA Conference motto “Transform Libraries – Transform Societies,” the poster “Transform Libraries – Transform Societies: Go Green” wants to raise awareness for libraries that follow the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. Made by LIS students in a project seminar at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, it advertises an invitation to become a member of ENSULIB, one of IFLA’s SIG. The poster’s main focus, however, is the question of what a Green Library is and why sustainability is so important in modern society. It will introduce different concepts that can transform libraries and will also provide examples for a green environment that can be discussed by visitors. These, in addition to the self-evident need for Green Libraries, should engage people in conversation. Various icons and pictures will underline the aforementioned main points and liven up the DIN A0 poster. Speech bubbles will indicate statements with topics for further discussion. Because the poster will only include a brief overview of ENSULIB, the group’s website can be reached via QR-Code to provide more information. Furthermore, ENSULIB’s brand-new book project, to be published in the IFLA Publication Series, will be presented through flyers: "Going Green: Implementing Sustainable Strategies in Libraries around the world".
