"My Green Identity" project activities

The Valmiera Library is a green-minded institution - we do care about the global climate and support the UN's 2030 Sustainable Development Goals. That is why we are actively involved in the NORDPLUS-supported international project "My Green Identity" (2018-2020), which emphasizes the role of libraries in initiating and supporting a variety of activities to change public thinking and promote nature-friendly living habits.
