ASIS&T’s Vision “Establish a new information professionalism in a world where information is of central importance to personal, social, political, and economic progress,” is a call to action for the information professional community (researchers, practitioners, educators, students, stakeholders) to respond to the United Nations 2030 Agenda. "Transforming our World: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development" (https://sustainabledevelopment.un.org/post2015/transformingourworld) that is an ambitious plan of action for sustainable, universal development. Are ASIS&T members working as change agents actively addressing society’s grand challenges? What is the impact of having access to information to address the 17 Sustainable Development Goal(s) (SDGs) of the 2030 Agenda, and what solutions are needed to tackle society’s associated grand challenges? The 2020 ASIS&T Annual Meeting will serve as a forum to co-learn, problematize, discover, design information work, scholarship, education, and innovation. Collaborations and interdisciplinarity are cornerstones of a collective impact approach and such initiatives and experiences are welcome.
Join a cadre of scholars and professionals from around the globe to share research, innovations, and insights regarding the impact of information science and technology on individuals, groups, organizations, governments and societies throughout the world.
