Sustainability


The conference team is working hard to make WILU17 a sustainable conference through the U of A’s Green Spaces Certification program. Help us go for Gold! We are hoping to certify as a Gold Event for this Sustainability program and are following principles of Sustainable Procurement for this conference.

Green things we are doing @WILU2017

  • WILU badges are being borrowed from University of Alberta Alumni Services, so please do not throw them out or recycle them at the end of the conference; look for the baskets to return them at the end of WILU.
  • We are hoping to be single-use water bottle free at WILU, so please take advantage of the refillable water pitchers and glasses during the conference.
  • ​Please bring your own reusable travel mug. We will be providing you with a nifty WILU 2017 water bottle (shown here)!
  • Consider bringing a device to reduce paper note taking.
  • Don’t print the program! The WILU team is working on an app that will include all session and event details.
  • WILU17 will be running on Bullfrog Power to reduce our emissions footprint and support the growth of renewable energy in Canada.
