7th INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM AND CONFERENCE
Creativity For Sustainable Education
20 - 21 April 2020
Council for Creative Education (CCE) Finland cordially invites you to participate and explore the
Creativity for Sustainable Education.
This involves targeting the most vulnerable, increasing basic resources and services, and supporting communities affected by conflict and climate-related disasters.
Achieving inclusive and quality education for all reaffirms the belief that education is one of the most powerful and proven vehicles for sustainable development. It ensures that all girls and boys complete free primary and secondary schooling. It also aims to provide equal access to affordable vocational training, to eliminate gender and wealth disparities, and achieve universal access to a quality higher education.
This program includes diverse speakers & participants of different genders and backgrounds. All registered participants fall under the CCE's Code of Conduct, so make sure your staff has read it. The event has sufficient security and all team members are trained for dealing with conflict situations. The venue space, program, marketing and other activities in a way that ensures that all attendees, regardless of their gender, body type, age, race, sexuality, background and/or ability, feel comfortable and safe.
All participants have the opportunity to properly sort any material that is inside the event. Ensure that recycling stations are well situated, there are enough bins, and that sorting information is properly given. Minimize waste sources by eliminating and banning flyers, stickers, or giveaways at the event, opting instead for digital or experiential options. Remember that all printed materials are forbidden.
The venue is easily accessible with public transportation during and after the event hours, and encourage and guide people in the use of public transportation in all communications related to event info.
Optimize routes and loads, use fuel-efficient, hybrid or electric options, and avoid unnecessary travel of people and materials.
Ensure the materials used in the event, e.g. in creating the look of the venue, in promoting the venue, or used otherwise (e.g. name tags) are procured close to the venue and favor recycled or reused materials or existing structures. Recycle, donate or reuse materials after the event. Don’t be afraid to question if you really need all materials – put your money into what really creates value for the attendee, rather than another corporate giveaway that will be forgotten the next day.
Ban plastic bottles, and use tap water instead. Provide vegetarian or vegan food, and reduce the amount of high-emission food items used (e.g. dairy, beef or lamb). Favor food options that come from local producers. Use reusable or biodegradable catering items such as plates, cups, etc.
Supporting vulnerable regions will directly contribute. These actions must also go hand in hand with efforts to integrate disaster risk measures, sustainable natural resource management, and human security into national development strategies. It is still possible, with strong political will, increased investment, and using existing technology, to limit the increase in global mean temperature to two degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels, aiming at 1.5°C, but this requires urgent and ambitious collective action.
Buy green certificates for electricity requirements and use energy-efficient options in building the venue, e.g LED’s. Require the use of environmentally friendly chemicals in cleaning.
