Collect valuable sources of knowledge and discuss it :)

  • one goal already reached in Leipzig: a sustainable caterer (improvements still needed)
  • a "completely green event" by Deutsche Bundesstiftung Umwelt:
  • a little bit offtopic but maybe worth a read:

  • we might need:

  • a co2-calculator for congress related transports/storage, travel, accomodation + and something to compare it to other events

  • still unsorted links:


    unsorted thoughts:

  • at 35c3 (partially already at 34c3) we had a local transportation ticket included and collectively financed :)
  • many things at congress are built with wood :)
  • we have an inhouse navigation tool and inhouse phone system (POC), reducing costs for international guests :)
  • congress helpers often sleep at hostels or collective housing projects :)
  • we have "congress everywhere" :)
  • we collectively re-use and repair old gadgets at congress - and we teach others how to do it (soldering!!) :)
  • our electronics gadgets are mainly made of plastic, have a short lifespan and use lots of power :(
  • is the energy source for heating and electricity at congress/camp/event sustainable?
  • -> (Messe Leipzig?!
    -> sustainable fairground with tents

  • could we ask a bike sharing company to deliver ~100 bikes to the CAMP? this might reduce individual transportation costs and reduce loading space and coordination efforts. if the bikes can be used "30/60 minutes for free" or locally used via an untracked codelock app, we might just pay the bike rental a general fee for delivery&service
