Pre and post touring program
GA2023 is offering an exciting pre and post General Assembly touring program all around Australia.
Be inspired by the unrivalled experiences exploring the abounding natural and historical cultural landscapes of Australia.
We are committed to making GA2023 environmentally and socially sustainable and to creating opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander-owned businesses and employment. Consumption, conference paper handouts and giveaways will be minimised. The conference program and abstracts will be available on the GA2023 app and website.
Our main venue, ICC Sydney, was Gold certified by the internationally-recognised LEED© green building program in 2017 and is also EarthCheck Silver certified. Food and wine are locally-sourced and uneaten food is donated to charity partners to feed those in need. ICC recycling stations allow for pre-sorting of waste, with off-site recycling and organic waste processing producing fertiliser and green energy.
You can help to reduce the GA2023 carbon footprint……
Please fly Qantas and purchase airline carbon offsets – Qantas is proud to be the Official Airline Partner of ICOMOS GA2023. Through their Fly Carbon Neutral Program, Qantas customers are able to support accredited projects that offset their carbon footprint and make a positive impact on our planet. Tick-the-box to Fly Carbon Neutral when booking your flight and when you use cash to fly carbon neutral, Qantas will match your contributions dollar for dollar. GA2023 registered delegates and travel partners can also access discounted Qantas fares on eligible flights via the GA2023 booking portal by entering the password GA2023.
Reusable water bottles and water stations will be provided, but please bring your own reusable cups for hot beverages.
Following GA2023, EarthCheck, our ICOMOS GA2023 Sustainability Patron, will prepare an energy post-audit report. Unavoidable consumption will be offset by purchasing carbon offsets from social and environmental enterprises.
Further details are available in our Sustainability Guide and Aboriginal Procurement Policy. We look forward to seeing you and working together to make ICOMOS events sustainable into the future.
