Environmental Sustainability at the Congress
We’re committed to running an event that has sustainability at its heart. Following the Covid-19 pandemic, we believe it’s important to offer opportunities for all of you to get together, network and share the fantastic work that is going on across our continent. We’re doing everything we can to mitigate the environmental impact of hosting an in person event. Your collaboration is, therefore, essential to achieve these goals.

We encourage all delegates to offset carbon emissions associated with their travel to the conference. We will share some reputable carbon offset programs with delegates in the coming weeks. When in Rome we encourage delegates to prioritize active travel in Rome by choosing to walk or cycle or to use public transportation.

Plastic usage
We won’t be using any single-use plastics during the Congress.

We work with our caterers to ensure that most of the ingredients used for lunches and refreshments are locally sourced and seasonal. All cups, plates, and cutlery will either be eco-friendly. We encourage all delegates to bring along reusable water bottles and cups.

The Congress Hotels in Rome have also been selected for their eco-friendly policy

We’re aiming to reduce the use of paper and encourage all delegates to minimise the quantity of printed materials associated with the Congress by taking notes on their phones, laptops or tablets.
