GI_Forum as Green Meeting – what we do

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 are undertaking 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”!

Green Location

The Faculty of Natural Sciences (NAWI) at the University of Salzburg is a green location. Enjoy its directly accessible green spaces, its own botanic garden and the neighboring landscape conservation area. Experience GI_Forum as an “event in harmony with nature”!

Travel Green

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 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 center, the train station and the airport to the conference venue.

Tip: 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.

 

 Stay Green

Many hotels and guesthouses are located nearby our venue. Check out our special offers as well as the indicated distances to the NAWI and find especially awarded Green Hotels.

You can also book a bike for the entire week and navigate through Salzburg with the “Radlkarte” – a special bike navigation app. There are sufficient bicycle parking slots available right in front of the University.
