Sustainability is becoming less of a buzz word this year and more of a call to action, and rightly so.
If you are looking for new ways to integrate the principles of responsible meetings into your event, these three sustainability conferences could be a good place to start.
2017 Seoul World Architects Congress, Seoul, Korea
- Sept. 3rd through the 10th
More than 30,000 people are expected to flock to the “Soul of the City” conference, which will delve into the five realms of architecture—culture, nature, future, passion and human value—as they relate to revitalizing the soul of a city. Forums, seminars, exhibitions, competitions and activities around this theme, and the necessity of including cultural heritage in architectural design as a testament to sustainability, will be offered to attendees. The event will also utilize two of Seoul’s top event venues such as the Dongdaemun Design Plaza.
2017 International Conference of Indigenous Archives, Libraries and Museums, Santa Ana Pueblo, New Mexico
- Oct. 9th through the 12th
The Association of Tribal Archives, Libraries and Museums conference represent the world’s largest gathering of people dedicated to sustaining and advancing indigenous cultures. This year’s conference will be held just outside of Albuquerque at the Hyatt Regency Tamaya Resort and Spa. Groups can expect workshops, lectures and other hands-on activities that explore and celebrate indigenous cultures.
Global Conference on Jobs and Inclusive Growth through Sustainable Tourism, Montego Bay, Jamaica
- Nov. 27th through the 29th
Advancing sustainable tourism is on the agenda at the “Global Conference on Jobs and Inclusive Growth through Sustainable Tourism” conference, which will be held at the Montego Bay Convention Centre as part of the United Nations World Tourism Organization’s “International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development” initiative.
