Céilí on the Green!
Greening our Céilí
Between travel, Airmiles and swag, conferences have their own particular footprint. At Data Céilí, we want to reduce our footprint, and we are excited to announce our environmental strategy for Data Céilí - Dublin 2020.
No more printed booklets, attendees can use our web app and conference monitors to find out about the different sessions.
Céilí Green Track
This track will be remote sessions, allowing speakers to present without clocking up the associated Airmiles. These sessions will be the same duration as the in-person sessions and feature the best of world speakers (We would love to hear from speakers across the globe, who can still do their bit for the community from the comfort of their Home/Office)
Recyclable Data Céilí T-Shirts
We will not be handing out any Swag bags. In many cases, the contents of the bags go straight to recycling, so we will cut out the middle man and simply not produce any. Our Sponsors will still be handing out their normal promotion product and we would encourage everyone to visit their stands. They do pay for the cost of running the event.
These will be made of recycled material & look fabulous. All proceeds from purchases will contribute to a tree-planting fund to offset carbon.
We will be contributing to an approved fund to get trees planted as part of a rewilding initiative.
We will update as we add other features and welcome any suggestion as to how we can make our event a green as possible.
