IFLA WORLD CONGRESS 2023
(BILATERAL EVENT STOCKHOLM X NAIROBI / ONLINE)
With this year’s theme: “Emergent Interaction“, we aim to inspire innovative thinking and encourage collaboration across disciplines, driving progress towards a more sustainable and equitable world. To delve deeper into the theme we have lined up three sub-themes that will shape our discussions and explorations throughout the event.
– Leave no one behind; Inclusion and social justice are important dimensions in sustainable and equitable development.
– Act local, think global; the interdependencies between the local and global complex networks and how they are played out in practice.
– Beyond borders; approaches to environmental challenges across geographical zones, borders, professional disciplines and culture
