It is our „green vision“ to organize GI_Forum according to the principles of environmental compatibility and sustainability. With our activities we want to contribute to a world where people deal responsibly with our ecosystem, and our natural and human resources. We intend to undertake measures that contribute to the protection of our environment and climate. You are invited to contribute actively to the protection of our environment; please note our “green tips”!
The Faculty of Natural Sciences at the University of Salzburg is the ideal venue with its closeness to nature. This unique location invites you to stay with its direct access to green spaces, its own botanic garden and the neighbouring landscape conservation area. Participants and exponents experience GI_Forum as an “event in harmony with nature”.
Tip: Through its central location and excellent connection to the public transportation network the NAWI is easily reachable from your hotel.
Travel to Salzburg eco-friendly by using the train (the “Deutsche Bahn” and the “ÖBB”) . The local public transportation system offers our participants a continuous and direct connection with emission-free city buses from the city centre, the train station and the airport to the conference venue.
Tip One: The first 100 participants who arrive by public transport will receive a free three-day ticket of the “Salzburger Verkehrsverbund” for the core zone of Salzburg upon presentation of their ticket.
Tip Two: An e-car rental station can be found just across from the Natural Science Faculty. For further information please visit www.fahre-emil.at. (website is only provided in German language)
