Reducing the ecological impact of T2051MCC
When we started to think about T2051MCC it was clear to us that we could not accept visitors traveling by plane to a climate conference. Therefore, virtual participation had to be equally attractive. So we developed the virtual arm of T2051MCC with our partners Moby Digg and MediaBox TV.
In order to further reduce the ecological impact of T2051MCC we started a project with Rehab Republic, FutureCamp Climate, and Omnicert. With the zero waste team of Rehab Republic, we looked for ways to minimize waste. The climate experts of Munich-based consultancy FutureCamp Climate helped us to reduce and compensate remaining carbon emissions with a mitigation project of ‘Menschen für Menschen’ foundation in Ethiopia. OmniCert ecological verifiers help us critically review our attempts. In this session, our three partners will give you insights on their efforts. Our goal is to share this knowledge with other makers of artistsic projects.
