Whether travelling in the air, or along the land, we encourage all conference delegates to offset their carbon emissions with a good offsetting program of their choice. We recommend the local ‘Fly it Forward‘ option from our friends at Groundswell Network Society. This program offers individuals the option to voluntarily offset their carbon produced from air travel through a financial contribution toward demonstration projects and education programs that Groundswell conducts locally to inspire conservation action.
