Our tips for a more sustainable IDMC
Global warming and climate change are serious major concerns worldwide. As organization, we feel social responsibility to reduce our CO2 footprint as much as we can. Especially air traveling strongly contributes to CO2 emission. We would like to give attention to sustainability for this IDMC-14 conference, with the hope that this focus continues in future editions. Our goals are:
- Going paperless
- Reduce plastic waste
- Offset CO2 emission
- Create awareness
We won’t handout any abstract book, program, notebook etc. on paper, but we will provide all information online via the website. We encourage you to make notes on your tablet or laptop. In the unfortunate case printing is inevitable, FSC paper will be used.
We won’t serve drinks or food in plastic disposables. We recommend bringing your own water container, which you can fill at several taps at the venue.
Venue "De Vereeniging"
The venue is highly committed to sustainability on several levels, including cooperation with local organic producers, energy purchase and consumption, waste management, local climate control and food waste reduction.
We strongly recommend coming by train if you can reach our venue within 7 hours of travel, following Radboudumc policy. International train tickets are often cheaper when you buy them in advance. Consider how many people from your lab or hospital will be attending the conference with you if you have to take an intercontinental flight, as this conference will be held in a hybrid format and part of it can be followed from home as well.
We encourage you to use public transportation in the Netherlands, including Nijmegen. Information about public transportation can be found under practical info> travel information and on www.ns.nl/en or www.9292ov.nl/en.
Offset carbon emission
We offer you the possibility to calculate your travel CO2 emission and offset this with the next option: Trees for All is a certified Dutch non-profit organization, which plants trees all over the world. Please use this link and our campaign code “IDMC-14 green” for offset.
