On Sunday 29 July 2018, representatives from libraries, government, education and civil societies in Australia and across the Asia-Pacific, will gather on the Gold Coast to compare strategies for incorporating the Sustainable Development Goals in their work.
The Summit will be a combination of presentations and interactive workshops designed to ensure that Summit attendees depart with a clear understanding of how the SDGs can be embedded in their own organisation. They will gain a national and international library perspective on the SDGs; be better informed about ways of progressing this agenda, and be equipped with the information they need to spread their message in their own communities and through professional networks.
Speakers include :
- Christopher Woodthorpe, Director of the United Nations Information Centre
- Margaret Allen, CEO and State Librarian at the State Library of Western Australia
- Sue McKerracher, CEO of the Australian Library and Information Association
- Opeta Alefaio, Director, National Archives of Fiji
