Keynote: Public librarians: A driving force for the sustainable development goals.

I am proud that the new “International Conference on Design and Development of Public Library Services” chose me to do a keynote about librarians as a driving force for the SDGs.

The librarians skillset and knowledge of the community combined makes the librarian the perfect driving force for supporting people to have real impact on meeting the SDGs

“A librarian is a connector of people, knowledge, learning and communities. She is the friendly neighbourhood hero actively working to make communities smarter – one person at a time. ​ She knows her community and can translate complicated information into new learning opportunities”

The audience in the conference hall – and online – had very good questions. What an honour to meet colleagues from Iran in the conference hall – even though I was only there via the virtual platform.

Here is my presentation:
