YPRL and the UN Sustainable Development Goals  


In 2015, world leaders collaborated to establish 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s), with the aim to tackle inequalities globally and craft a better world for everybody by 2030. Since 2017, Australian libraries have formally been promoting and working towards these goals.  

At Yarra Plenty Regional Library we have operated in response to the following goals: 


Goal 1 - No poverty 

Goal 3 - Good health and well-being 

Goal 4 - Quality education 

Goal 5 - Gender equality 

Goal 8 - Decent work and economic growth 

Goal 9 - Industry, innovation and infrastructure 

Goal 10 - Reduced inequalities 

Goal 11 - Sustainable cities and communities 

Goal 16 - Peace and justice, strong institutions 

Goal 17 - Partnerships for the goal 

Libraries address many of these goals in the day-to-day work we do.

We demonstrate this year-round through our programs and events, our collections development and our sustainability efforts. Learn more about how YPRL has addressed these goals in the past year in our new Sustainable Development Goals Report.
