Barbara has been leading Libraries Without Borders’ strategic development and international growth since 2012, driving the creation of overseas branches and the global coordination of LWB’s Ideas Box. With previous experience in profit, non-profit and international organisations, Barbara strives to identify cross cutting and creative approaches to addressing educational challenges globally.

She will present the Ideas Box, a comprehensive portable media centre, with an in-built power source, powerful, standardized, customizable and easy to use. The Ideas Box is a major innovation for improving access to information and culture for all, even in the most remote contexts. The first Australian Ideas Box was inaugurated in Queensland in July 2015. One year later, Barbara analyses the impacts and perspectives.
