Sustainable Events Training

Wednesday, March 13, 2024 14:00to15:00

Online Session

Offered by the McGill Office of Sustainability and Organizational Development

What are sustainable best practices for event planners at McGill? How can event planners boost engagement at their events and reduce waste at the same time? This workshop will provide staff with the tools to plan sustainable in-person and virtual events at McGill by providing an overview of the McGill Sustainable Events program. This initiative from the Office of Sustainability provides consultations, trainings, and resources to encourage more environmentally, socially, and economically responsible events at McGill. The program focuses on events' environmental health impact (food systems, waste management), inclusivity (diversity of organizers, programming, and participants), and accessibility (reducing barriers). The workshop will also present a tool created specifically for McGill event planners to estimate their event’s travel emissions.
