Coming Soon! Greening the library

How libraries can become instrumental to transitioning to sustainability

Whether you are working in a library or with a library, this course shares what has been learnt in the context of Transition Town initiatives in helping grass-roots organisations prepare for the circular, fossil free society.

We cover:

  • Why libraries are ideal places to catalyze changes
  • One experiment: Farsta in Sweden
  • A step-by-step program for bringing green to your library and community
  • Activities to engage schools and daycare centres
  • Events. A guide to putting on events
  • Local stakeholders: identifying and engaging the local community
  • Ten do's and don'ts based on experience
  • Tips for books

The traing offers you a wealth of experience from initatives around the world, and helps you plan an information project as a library staff, local politician or local activist.
