We celebrate global environmental days like Earth Day, World Environment Day, World Oceans Day and others, which focus not only on the need to reduce our impact on the planet as we recover from the effects of Covid-19, but also on how we can play a role in repairing the damage we’ve done by exploring natural processes, emerging green technologies, and innovative thinking that can restore the world’s ecosystems.
To support and celebrate these global environmental days over the course of 2022, we’ve pulled together key content resources, including an engaging podcast series with Robert Brinkman from Northern Illinois University on Practical Sustainability. How much impact can one person have on the planet? What changes can the individual make for a cleaner, greener life? what are some of the ways academic libraries and librarians are supporting sustainability research and goals?
