Past Activities - France
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 2020, 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.
