Environmental & Family Strategies at CSF2023
At CSF 2022 in Toronto, sustainability was a topic of great interest, specifically sustainability in medicine, as was accessibility to educational meetings.
The CSF planning committee took to heart the feedback they received and have incorporated the following elements into this year's meeting:
No paper programs - all CSF information is available via the CSF App
Offset your carbon footprint - make a donation to Tree Canada
Sustainable menu considerations - reduced red meat orders for more sustainable and plant based options
Refillable water stations - bring your own bottle or purchase one from the CAGS booth near registration
On-site daycare - introducing the CSF Mini-Surgeons Clubhouse full-day daycare
Breastfeeding room - a safe, private space for nursing mothers
The host hotels are also doing their part with unique interventions of their own, such as:
Using more plant based single-use plates and recycled paper products
Using refillable bottles for shampoos, creams, etc.
Offering recycling stations to accommodate the City's waste reduction activities - like charging for plastic bags - to aid delegates in better managing their waste.
