CDC’s 2010 Sustainability Forum: How to Plan a Green and Healthy Conference

You can minimize the impact of conferences through limited consumption of energy and resources. On October 14th, the CDC hosted its 2010 Sustainability forum on “How to Plan a Green and Healthy Conference”. A panel of experts weighed in on how to choose healthy foods for conferences and how to incorporate exercise/ wellness into meeting agendas. By scheduling breaks for physical activity, providing healthy snacks, and locating meetings in central locations you promote a healthier, happier conference setting. A representative of a major hotel and conference chain provided information on green conference locations. Although hosting an entirely sustainable meeting may seem daunting, implementing just a few environmentally friendly practices can make a positive impact.
