Rethinking the future for the better: environment and social inclusion in scientific events

ONLINE EVENT 21-22 November 2022

COP-26 suggests that huge efforts are needed to re-think our behaviors and actions to reduce human impact on Earth. Scientific conferences, meetings, and similar events may have a huge environmental impact because of organizing and travel emissions and offer limited possibilities of social inclusion for researchers with different socioeconomic backgrounds. At the same time, in-presence meetings offer multiple benefits to people in terms of strengthening relationships, networking, or mental health due to positive human interactions. Because of these conflicting aspects, and the need to re-thinking the way we plan our events and not come back to the “business as usual” way, we propose this series of meetings to discuss together different aspects, environmental or social, related to our meetings.

Our idea is to discuss together how we can organize scientific events in a more sustainable and social-inclusive way. We think that science has the responsibility to show new ways of behaving sustainably.
During this event, participants will have the possibility to learn about environmental impacts, calculations, compensations, and about social inclusivity.
The last event will be a real working group activity, where participants will be involved in first person in creating their own scientific event!
