The Library is happy to join the activities organised at the Institute for Sustainability Week from April 1 to 5. To celebrate the event, an exhibition is taking place in the Davis Lounge, where a selection of documents on the Environment will be exposed.
The Environment belongs to the main topics covered by the Library over the past decades. Our dedicated collection is characterised by a large scope of subjects and perspectives of study, covering topics like climate change, natural resources and conflict, sustainable development, among others.
Its strength is to analyse environmental issues from a social, political, economic and historical perspective on both North and South, with a particular attention on Southern countries.
The Library is working to promote knowledge within the academic sphere as much as possible, making it visible and accessible to everyone interested in environmental challenges.
