Tuesday, 24 April 2018, Canberra: The Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA) would like to announce that the ALIA Asia-Pacific Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Summit will be held on Sunday 29 July 2018 on the Gold Coast.
The Summit will be a combination of presentations and interactive workshops designed to ensure that Summit attendees depart with a clear understanding of how the SDGs can be embedded in their own organisation. They will gain a national and international library perspective on the SDGs; be better informed about ways of progressing this agenda; and be equipped with the information they need to spread their message in their own communities and through professional networks.
Speakers include: Christopher Woodthorpe, Director of the United Nations Information Centre; Vicki McDonald, CEO and State Librarian at the State Library of Queensland; Margaret Allen, CEO and State Librarian at the State Library of Western Australia; and Opeta Alefaio, Director, National Archives of Fiji.
