Similar to its previous CEC General Assemblies, the 2018 Novi Sad General Assembly of will have an eco-management that will look after different aspects of the organisation of the conference. Carbon compensation of greenhouse gas emissions due to travelling will be carried out with “Klima-Kollekte,” a church compensation fund. The money will go towards greenhouse gas reduction projects.
At the General Assembly it will be possible to choose vegetarian meals that will be served on a buffet table. Additionally, food will be seasonal and domestic, coming from local farms, and will consist of ecological and fair-trade products whenever possible.
An attempt will be made to avoid plastic material as far as possible. There will be no mini plastic packages at breakfast, and water will be served during the conference in big recyclable tanks. The congress centre will provide possibilities for waste separation (plastic, paper, glass).
The Assembly organisation will try to reduce the use of paper consumption as much as possible. Double-sided printing, the use of recycled paper and a thrifty use of hand-outs will be steps on this road.
