Green Libraries Conference – March 2023

The Inaugural Green Libraries Conference took place on Friday 24th March 2023 in London at the Wellcome Collection. 130 delegates came together from across the UK to discuss the attainable and sustainable successes of the Green Libraries Initiative.
Chris Neath, Network Manager for CMLNPN, was pleased to attend and was inspired by the work already ongoing in the libraries sector.

The Green Libraries Partnership aims to:

  • discover and harness the existing work going on in libraries relating to Sustainability
  • build and support environmental understanding and action within libraries so they can play their full part in creating a better future for planet and people
  • enable libraries to work with their communities to continue to build environmental understanding and action
  • position libraries at the heart of local environmental programmes including those led by Local Authorities

Share with us your plans, experience and anything you may be developing in your community library to take action towards a more sustainable future.
