In Italy, on 30th October, a meeting preparatory to the national workshops has been organised in collaboration with “Rete delle Reti” (EBLIDA Members: AIB and CSBNO); the national workshop will be organised later in December. Gianni Stefanini, Valentina Bondesan, Simona Villa (representing CSBNO) and Cecilia Cognigni (representing AIB) attended the meeting together with Giuseppe Vitiello (EBLIDA Director).
This workshop aims at identifying SDGs that are relevant for a national library strategy; the good news is that one of the four priorities in the Italian ESIF 2021-2027 is “Culture as a vehicle for Social Cohesion”.
