Planning guides: conference.

Greener Driving

  1. Consider Location!

    Choose a location where people can walk, ride bikes, or take public transit instead of driving.

  2. Encourage attendees to carpool!

    Let your attendees know that sharing travels is part of the experience of your event, encourage them to be green and use the shared travel time. Make it easy for your attendees to find each other. For very small conferences this can be coordinated via emails or a forum; for larger events organizations like SpaceShare ride- and room-share can do most of the work for you.

  3. Provide Incentives.

    Subsidize transit, not parking. Give prizes -- this can be as simple as public recognition -- for attendees who leave their car home or fill every seat.
