21st Century Learning International Sustainability Pledge

We are committed to reducing the impact our events have on the environment. To become a truly sustainable community we need our communities help too.

21st Century Learning International Will Commit to:

  • Avoiding single use plastics
  • Re-using items as much as possible from event to event
  • Produce high quality collateral that people want to use/re-use, and encourage our partners to do this as well
  • Not to throw away what can be kept and reused
  • Work with vendors to avoid unnecessary packaging
  • Reduce use of “single use” non-recyclable signage
  • Not to over cater events with perishable food
  • Provide event resources digitally where possible and encourage our partners to do this as well
  • Carbon offset all flights we book in the production of our events
  • Work with venue providers to ensure trash is separated and recycled where possible
  • Continually seek out new ways to be efficient and sustainable and to update this pledge periodically

We encourage our community to:

  • Not take more food than they need
  • Not take collateral and gift items you don’t plan to keep and/or give away
  • Provide mechanisms for participants at our events to carbon offset their travel impact
