At ISPAH, we recognise the urgency of addressing climate change and are committed to playing our part in mitigating its impacts. Understanding that large-scale events can have a considerable carbon footprint, we actively work to reduce ours by incorporating environmentally friendly practices in all aspects of our event planning and execution.
We prioritise sustainable practices at our physical event locations, such as waste reduction, recycling initiatives, and sourcing local, sustainable food and materials whenever possible. Additionally, we choose venues that align with our commitment to sustainability, favoring locations that employ energy-efficient technologies and practices.
Beyond the congress, we strive to use our platform to raise awareness about the intersection of climate change and public health. We believe that the promotion of physical activity goes hand-in-hand with advocating for healthier environments. By incorporating climate-related discussions into our scientific programmes, we encourage our community to consider how their work in promoting physical activity can also contribute to environmental sustainability. We are dedicated to driving change, not only in our direct actions but also by inspiring our attendees to carry these principles into their own professional and personal lives.
