Congresses, conferences, events such as concerts ... many people travel to other regions or cities for unique events. However, large amounts of resources are used, emissions are generated and our environment is adversely affected. But organizers of congresses and events are increasingly focusing on climate protection, regional added value and social responsibility. Instead of causing piles of rubbish and traffic avalanches, "Green Meetings" and "Green Events" are characterized by increased energy efficiency, waste avoidance and environmentally friendly arrival and departure of guests. Central aspects are also regional added value and social responsibility. The event thus does its part to preserve creation and maintain the respect of the population, guests and sponsors.
We are therefore striving to organize the Christian ENCOUNTERS 2020 in Graz according to the criteria of the Austrian Ecolabel for Green Meetings / Green Events.
