What do your sustainability efforts for OPEN look like?

We encourage all attendees to bring their own reusable water bottle to the event, as well as carpool with colleagues whenever possible (i.e., to/from the airport, to/from restaurants, etc.). Packing light is also strongly recommended. All participants will be directed to return their conference name badge at the end of the event so that we can sanitize and reuse them for future events. Single-use plastics are limited throughout the conference, and swag given out is sourced from recyclable materials when possible. Branded collateral is thoughtfully sourced and reused to limit our carbon footprint. No program guides will be printed; all attendees will be encouraged to use our conference app, Whova. With each event, we continue to strive for increased sustainability efforts.
