How we're being sustainable

With conference-sized events it's easy, and very common, to have a lot of waste. To help cut back on this waste, we have adopted a new approach in 2019. One refillable TLF water bottle will be offered to each participant and a refill station provided for use throughout the Forum. We will also have the "Guidebook" conference application, again this year to save on printed programs. Another aim is to use sustainable crockery, cutlery and glassware, wherever possible. We have also found that having 'grazing table' at the end of the first day is a great way to reduce the amount of plates being used.

Other suggestions to make this yearly event more sustainable? Please let us know!
