Transformation through Information: IFLA Engages at UN High Level Political Forum

IFLA - Fri, 20/07/2018 - 00:44

Over the ten days of this year’s High Level Political Forum, IFLA engaged intensively with governments, UN officials, experts and partners from civil society. By ensuring that decision-makers understand the contribution libraries and access to information make to development, IFLA supports its members in their work to guarantee recognition and support for libraries.

The sixth High Level Political Forum took place on 9-18 July 2018 at the UN’s Headquarters in New York. The event brings together governments and organisations in order to discuss progress, identify gaps, and plan next steps on delivering the Sustainable Development Goals.

It is also the occasion for a number of key annual milestones, including formal reporting by UN bodies, voluntary national reviews from Member states, and hundreds of discussions and presentations.

Again and again throughout the event, the power of libraries – both as a place to promote the SDGs, and as a partner in delivery – was recognised and welcomed by many, including at the highest levels.

Rights, Resilience and Relationships

IFLA took an active role in a variety of sessions, demonstrating how relevant libraries are across the 2030 Agenda.

SDG16, which includes the commitment to providing access to information, remains a core focus. With this SDG in focus next year, IFLA participated actively in sessions focusing on how to show the importance of defending rights and promoting good governance.

Sessions on disaster risk reduction provided an opportunity to highlight both the importance of including cultural heritage in government plans, and what libraries can do to help communities recover.

Finally, there was strong recognition for libraries’ unique role in bringing together the SDGs. Nineteen SDG targets reference the importance of access, and only libraries provide a comprehensive way of delivering them all. Libraries can work with actors across the board to deliver progress.

Localising the SDGs: Delivering Development in Cities and Communities

With SDG 11 – sustainable cities and communities – a particular focus this year, there was a strong emphasis on the need for action at the local level.

IFLA took advantage of these opportunities to talk about libraries and their work, and build understanding and support among a wide range of stakeholders. City mayors – many of whom have direct influence over libraries – welcomed the opportunity to talk about how our institutions help deliver on local priorities.

SDG11 also contains a commitment to safeguard cultural and national heritage. Australia and Latvia, for example, highlighted the importance of libraries and heritage in their voluntary national reviews.

Looking Ahead

Three years into the UN’s 2030 Agenda, there was both a sense of frustration at how much has been achieved, but also countless great examples of UN, government and civil society actions.

UN officials in particular were impressed by IFLA’s International Advocacy Programme, whose Global Convening took place only a couple of weeks earlier. Over the coming year, IFLA will be working at all levels to build capacity to advocate around the SDGs.

Next year’s High-Level Political Forum will focus on SDG16, alongside 4 (education), 8 (employment) and 10 (inequality). Moreover, there will be a review launched of the whole 2030 Agenda. As such, 2019 will be a crucial year for libraries and the SDGs.

IFLA looks forward to working with the whole library community to realise the potential.

Five Runners Up (alphabetic order)
Hungary: The Jozsef Attila County and City Library in Tatabánya

Project Submission: "Library-Greening: Environmental education, strengthening of the environmentally aware attitudes with traditional and non-traditional resources”.

The Jozsef Attila County and City Library in Tatabánya developed innovative and well received consciousness-raising programs to increase community awareness of the importance of sustainable and ecologically sound development practices. The library takes their sustainability message into local schools and communities and encourages the uptake of green policies and practices. The library used a holistic approach to consciousness raising through children’s games, community film events, eco competitions for schools and the green reading room to name but a few of their programs.

Romania: The Biblioteca Comunala Sirna, Prahova County

Project Submission: "Sirna Rural Library cultivates involved citizens".

The Biblioteca Comunala Sirna, Prahova county, is a great example of how libraries can and must advocate in their local communities for environmental care and above all: with the young generations – it is very difficult to reach local authorities in some countries, but these efforts were huge. The library has made significant progress with a range of programs that have changed the community – with a very little budget but huge outcomes – children as leaders for others. The library has developed impressive partnerships with local, regional and national organizations to provide ongoing education in sustainability practices. 

Croatia: The National and University Library, Zagreb. 

Project Submission: “Green Festival – Lets Go Green”.

The National and University Library in Zagreb and its Green Festival shows great leadership across many sectors.

Iran: The National Library and Archives of Iran, Tehran 

Project Submission: “Designing a Green Library Evaluation checklist”.

The National Library and Archives of Iran, Tehran, have created something new and useful for every library, a checklist to evaluate a green library. Evaluating is important when planning and developing services and functions. It is interesting since the project is working on general guidelines more than on a single building. There are indicators so the study clarifies the existing situation, highlights success but also the needs. This could serve libraries as a roadmap towards becoming a green library. Extensive research and logical cohesive methods enabled the creation of a valuable planning checklist for current and future libraries and communities. The checklist encourages evaluation, self-reflection and continuous improvement in sustainability practices and identifies areas of deficiency and pathways for improvement. More …

Get Into Blue Shield Guide

IFLA - Wed, 18/07/2018 - 12:42

The Blue Shield aims to be the cultural equivalent of the Red Cross. It was founded in 1996 by the four key international organisations in their domains, the International Federation of Library and Information Associations and Institutions (IFLA), the International Council on Archives (ICA), the International Council of Museums (ICOM), and the International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS).

Its roots, however, are in the years following the Second World War. Following the global destruction caused by the war, UNESCO adopted the 1954 Hague Convention which created rules to protect cultural goods during armed conflicts. This was the first of such international treaty and highlighted the concept of common heritage. The Blue Shield is the symbol used to identify cultural sites protected by this Convention.

During the past years, we have continued to see our cultural heritage suffer damage and destruction. Natural or man-made disasters, wars and ethnic or religious conflicts represent a significant threat to the ability of future generations to enjoy the heritage we have today.

It is therefore a necessity to inform, train and help cultural heritage experts and other stakeholders to safeguard and protect our memory in order to pass it on. The Blue Shield, both at the international and national levels, provide a means for achieving this. But to continue doing so, we need your help. Your contribution at a national level is key to the goals. IFLA has therefore produced a guide: Get into Blue Shield. It'll help you better understand what Blue Shield is, and how you can become involved.
