“We will not create a huge impact if 1% of the people do 100% right – But we will if 100% of the people do 1% right.”
Do you want to spend your lunch outside? Enjoy your break for example at the Uniwiese next to one of the various biodiversity meadows at the University (https://goo.gl/maps/8xk8FyfGNhb3CKpD6). You can use the convenient deposit-refund system at the cafeteria to avoid waste.
What you can do
We described the actions we took to make the conference as sustainable as possible. To fulfil this goal, we need YOU as well. Even small decisions are a valuable contribution towards healthier and more sustainable conferences.
If you cannot avoid taking the plane, try to fly to an airport closest to the conference venue. From there you can make use of the suggested sustainable travel options.
Still not sure which travel option to choose? You can use this calculator: https://www.quarks.de/umwelt/klimawandel/co2-rechner-fuer-auto-flugzeug-und-co/. If you choose to go by car, you can cut emissions in half when travelling together with your colleagues or using car-sharing services like BlaBlaCar (https://www.blablacar.com/).
Do you want to explore as much as possible in Bremen, boost your health and limit emissions at the same time? Get around in Bremen while walking and cycling and fulfil all these goals at once. If the way is a bit longer you can easily use the well-connected public transport system.
