Citizens access to knowledge and their opportunity for participation in democracy is under pressure in an increasingly digital society.
The legal framework of copyright limitations and exceptions need to be updated for libraries to give citizens digital services matching the print based services.
The president of the Danish Library Association therefore runs to become a member of the EBLIDA Exectutice Committee, hoping to take part in EBLIDAs ongoing work to affect EU and European copyright laws.
Statement of Candidacy
Mr. Steen Bording Andersen (Denmark)
For EBLIDA Executive Committee 2015-2018
For me, the main reason to run for the EBLIDA Executive Committee is the need to work for citizens access to knowledge and information, whether it is physical or digital. I am a Danish politician and member of Aarhus City Council.
Being the chairman of Aarhus’ Committee for Cultural Affairs it is very important to me that we have a European organization lobbying and fighting for citizens' access to libraries. I strongly believe that libraries can change lives and empower people.
I will work for:
|2014 -||President of the Danish Library Association|
|2014 -||Chairman of Culture Committee Aarhus City Council|
|2010-2014||Vice-chairman of Culture Committee, Aarhus City|
|2010 -||President of the Danish Library Association Region Midtjylland|
|2005 -||Elected member of Aarhus City Council and member of the Culture Committee, as rapporteur concerning libraries and citizens service|
