ASPIRE 2022 is making sustainability a priority and is doing the following things that could use your help!
In 2022, we’re encouraging BYO lanyard, we won’t be printing ASPIRE lanyards. Bring your favourite from a previous year or a different conference
Like in 2021, we’re not printing an event journal. You will be able to take notes on the conference app or we encourage you to take your note digitally
We’re also not printing the programme. The programme will be available to download from the website shortly, and we will also be utilising the conference event app
Consider bringing your own water bottle. There are water fountains in OGGB for refilling your bottle. Locations are available on the event venue map – look for the droplet icon on the map. You can also ask at the registration desk for directions to the nearest.
All tea and coffee will be served with reusable crockery but you are welcome to bring your own reusable coffee mug. Here is an impact calculator by KeepCup to work out how much you would save.
Our caterers, Flame Tree, have created a wonderful menu for the day using locally sourced ingredients. We hope you enjoy it! If you have dietary requirements, but forgot to include them during online registration, email firstname.lastname@example.org
All food and drink will be served on crockery with reusable cutlery.
Getting to the Venue
We encourage all participants to consider sustainable methods of mobility:
Walking – This is a great option for those close enough. Enjoy the stroll!
Cycling – There are free bike racks provided at these locations:
- In front of the OGGB building on Grafton Road
- In the OGGB building Basement Level 1 (B1) inside the carpark (entrance is off Grafton Road, by the traffic lights on the southern corner of the building)
*Ensure to use your lock, and either secure your cycling accessories or take them with you. The Auckland Central City Cycle Way takes you directly to the OGGB building. Check out the Cycling Maps.
Public transport – 1,700 buses pass by (or close) to the University’s City Campus daily. Trains and ferries are 15-20 min walk away or a very short ride by bus. Find your best options at Auckland Transport Travel Planner.
If you are interested in your carbon footprint, here are some useful calculators by Toitū
