Our actions – the Pathway
Organize future annual conferences as hybrid events and offset CO2 emissions through the “Donate a tree to your city initiative” run by the municipality of Rimini
A special effort is currently focusing on organizing future annual conferences as hybrid events. Hybrid conferences contribute to bring potential added benefits such as expanded reach and increased attendance, enhanced opportunities for attendees travelling from less developed countries, reduced environmental impact, and reduced travel costs for attendees, speakers, and supporters.
EAERE commits to give also participants to its future Annual Conferences the possibility to offset the CO2 emissions related with their participation to the meetings and thereby successfully contribute to decrease the EAERE Conferences carbon footprint.

More about this target
The 27th EAERE Annual Conference represents in this sense the first hybrid event allowing for online participation to part of the sessions in programme. 166 of over 730 registered participants decided to adhere the initiative “Regala un albero alla tua città", for a total amount of €2774. As reported in our conference CO2 offset web page, the conference organizers will donate the collected amount to the Rimini Municipality towards sustainable development.
With reference to our activities on diversity, equity and inclusion, we have just closed a call for expressions of interest circulated among our members to be part of the EAERE DEI Executive Committee. The Executive Committee will be appointed during the EAERE Council will commence the co-designing of workshops to understand the thematic priorities, the needs, and the interests, and to co-design with the stakeholders the pathway that EAERE needs to take for becoming a diversity embracing association.
