Sustainable Thinking Builds Strong Libraries and Resilient Communities

Tuesday, March 15 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Register above to apply for a seat in this one-hour webinar. 

Building upon the “Sustainable Thinking” keynote from last year’s “The Exchange” conference, this panel discussion featuring leaders from the Sustainable Libraries Initiative (SLI) will show the organizational transformations that took place at different library settings when their leaders focused on infusing sustainable thinking and actions into all areas of library operations. Sustainable thinking can prepare libraries for future disruption and help build organizational resilience. Hear how the triple bottom line definition of sustainability was the guiding factor for library leaders as they introduced this new philosophy to their trustees, staff, and public.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of this webinar, participants will:

·        Leave with knowledge and an understanding of the triple bottom line definition of sustainability and how it directly relates to libraries;
·       Learn how to build organizational buy-in for sustainable thinking and sustainable concepts in libraries; and
·       Understand how the new core value of sustainability opens doorways to funding sources, community support, and new partnerships outside of library land.

CALL SPONSORED: In order to gain the most impact from learning events sponsored by the CALL grant, we ask that all participants engage fully (attend, participate, discuss and share). If you are unable or not willing to agree to this, please be kind and leave a seat or place for someone else.
