Sustainability Initiative Days, 17-21 October 2022: A Look Through our Collections

Library display - books, dvds and posters on sustainability

The environment and sustainable development belong 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, among others. The Sustainability Initiative Days are taking place from October 17 to 21 at the Institute. To celebrate the event, we put a small selection of titles on display at the entrance of the Library.

Our collection’s strength is analysing environmental issues from a social, political, economic and historical perspective on both North and South, with 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.
