About the Conference
Realising the potential of numerous young library users, and with regard to the position of communicators of relevant information, libraries are launching programs aimed at connecting users and the public with organizations and companies involved in the protection and preservation of our natural resources, as well as presenting valuable achievements in the field of sustainable development, nature conservation, traffic electrification, healthy lifestyle, nutrition, etc.
Such libraries are called Green Libraries and the segment in which they operate is the fastest developing in the field of information and communication sciences.
The 1st International Conference on Green Libraries – Lets Go Green! organized by the National and University Library in Zagreb in November 2018 is the first of its kind in the world and aims to create guidelines and conditions helping libraries communicate green content and programs, promote and enhance the awareness of the communicators themselves about the environment preservation and sustainable development and to strengthen existing cooperation among institutions sharing the same area of interest by exchanging insight into the current and predicted socio-economic impact of their programs on users.
Co-organizer of the conference is the Croatian Library Association – Working Group for Green Libraries, supported by the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Croatia.
