SDGs in IE Library

06 February 2020

The UN approved in 2015 the 2030 Agenda on Sustainable Development, an opportunity for countries and their societies to embark on a new path with which to improve the lives of all, without leaving anyone behind. The Agenda has 17 Sustainable Development Goals, which include from the elimination of poverty to the fight against climate change, education, women's equality, the defense of the environment or the design of our cities.

The Statement on libraries and sustainable development issued in Glasgow by IFLA´s Environmental Sustainability and Libraries Special Interest Group declares sustainable development as a concern to libraries as it relates to equal access to information, multiculturalism, education, free thought, and general democratic values.

IE Library offers a wide range of products and services that promote the achievement of each and every one of the 17 SDGs . The most recent is the creation of the "The Purple Corner": library section to promote gender equality (SDG 5). We collect information and books about this subject and develop activities that allow the participation of all the IE Community members.
