Since 1992, the community Hub of Libraries in Europe!

Striving towards an equitable, democratic and sustainable society

The European Bureau of Library, Information and Documentation Associations is an independent umbrella association of library, information, documentation and archive associations and institutions in Europe.

SDG15 - oriented projects and Best Practices

Activities in libraries on biodiversity should start with the promotion of the Convention on Biological Diversity dedicated to promoting sustainable development, which was signed by 150 government leaders at the 1992 Rio Earth Summit.

It is a common practice in libraries to set up collections dedicated to biodiversity. Workshops on gardens, nature ecology and sustainable development are being associated. In France, this has been the case, for instance, at the Médiathèque in Pézilla-la-Rivière (Perpignan region).

Another project - “Ernte Deine Stadt” (Harvest your city) – clearly illustrates the more advanced concept of Green Library at the Stadtbibliothek Bad Oldesloe, with the local library becoming a urban garden and library rooms transformed into spaces for reflection and creativity about Sustainability (meeting SD Goals 4, 11, 12, 15, 17).

The project “Wildlife around us: get to know and protect”, implemented by the Zachary Kniazheski Library, aims to make people aware of the wildlife around them and targets students, teachers, parents and the public as a whole with a view to creating awareness about the benefits of living together with our wild friends.
