We fully realize that organizing a conference with international participants has an extremely high carbon footprint, simply because everyone has to travel, most by air.
We do hope that this cost is worth it because of the networking that would be impossible to generate through an online conference. We also hope that you consider buying carbon offset points for your trip. We recommend considering the following gold certified programs: Planetair, TreeCanada, and Carbon Neutral.
We also try to take measures that minimize any additional and unnecessary waste and carbon footprint. We hope you support us in this effort and are looking forward to hearing your comments.
This conference has obtained Silver Certification from the McGill Sustainable Events Program, overseen by the McGill Office of Sustainability.
