Enssib (École nationale supérieure des sciences de l'information et des bibliothèques), Cfibd (Comité Français International pour les Bibliothèques et la Documentation), BPI (Bibliothèque Publique d’Information) and ABF (Association des bibliothécaires de France) set up a Working Group in charge of monitoring the follow up to the UN 2030 Agenda in French libraries.
Every year the Working Group calls for a mobilisation of French libraries around SDGs which may involve from 1,000 to 2,000 libraries.
On 24 November, French libraries held their national Think The Unthinkable workshop ( https://mailchi.mp/feff44e0d404/eblida-newsletter-4572022?e=[UNIQID]#bib), co-organised by EBLIDA and the Public Information Library (Bpi, France).
In particular, the workshop presented the case study of the Montreuil library, which used European Regional Development Funds to prevent school drop-outs and subsequent reintegration of young people into school.
ABF and BPI translated the EBLIDA document Les Fonds Européens Structurels et d’Investissement (FESI) 2021-2027: opportunités de financement pour les bibliothèques
The section Témoignages of the Agenda 2030 website of French libraries (https://airtable.com/shr7YkW20CqgjOhP1/tbl4WuWFb7hdaw1UY/viwNeF7J9TNh6gEZE?blocks=hide) lists no less than 300-350 projects implementing SDGs in the libraries of all French regions (including outermost regions).
