On May 17, CIFAL Flanders gave an SDG Workshop at a brainstorm day for libraries. The Department of culture, youth and media of the Flemish community organised this day to discuss the future of libraries in Flanders. Our Programme Manager, Jan Beyne, introduced the 2030 Agenda of the United Nations and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). After giving some background on the Agenda, the application of the SDGs in libraries was addressed. Finally, the implementation of the 2030 Agenda in Flanders’ policies was taken up.
