Lets Go Green! – 1st International Conference on Green Libraries

Lets Go Green! – 1st International Conference on Green Libraries

Mladen Domazet will give a keynote lecture at the 1st International Conference on Green Libraries – Lets Go Green!

The Lets Go Green! conference, organized by the National and University Library in Zagreb from 8 to 10 of November 2018, is the first of its kind in the world and aims to create guidelines and conditions helping libraries communicate green content and programs, promote and enhance the awareness of the communicators themselves about the environment preservation and sustainable development and to strengthen existing cooperation among institutions sharing the same area of ​​interest by exchanging insight into the current and predicted socio-economic impact of their programs on users.

In his lecture “Degrowth – a sobering vision for the green 21st century” Mladen Domazet reports from a precarious, but climate-stabilized year 2100 to show how a planet of over 7 billion people found diversification and flourishing at many levels of natural, individual and community existence, and turned away from the tipping points of catastrophic climate change and ecosystem collapse. That world is brought to life by shedding the myths of the pre-degrowth era – the main myth being that limiting global warming to 1.5°C is viable while maintaining economic activities focused on growth.
