We are aware of the ecological footprint that events can have, therefore we implement several measures to reduce our impact and offset our emissions:
- No plastic bottles are served or allowed on site. Please bring your reusable bottle.
- Reusable or compostable dishware is used during meals.
- Online registration without printed tickets required.
- Organic waste and recyclables will be collected on site.
- We encourage participants to take low emissions transportation to the event.
- We facilitate a carpooling group for Symposium participants.
Local and organic products
- The food and beverages served during lunches, coffee breaks and cocktail receptions will be 70% organic and local.
- We track all emissions incurred by participant transportation to the Symposium.
- Recycled paper is used for our printed materials.
- All emissions related to participant travel to the event will be offset through a riparian buffer revitalization project.
The Living Soils Symposium takes place on unceded Indigenous lands. The Kanien’kehá:ka are recognized as the custodians of the lands and waters on which we gather today. Tiohtiá:ke/Montreal is known as a historic gathering place for many Indigenous peoples.
Regeneration Canada is committed to taking action to regenerate land and water while acknowledging and respecting Indigenous knowledge that ensures thriving for all beings. We are dedicated to continuously educating ourselves and the communities we serve about the true history of this place.
