Organising a Carbon-wise Event

The handbook “Organising a Carbon-wise Event” is a result of the “Carbon-wise Jukola” project. It is an excellent guide to the planning and management of a sustainable orienteering event, and is available here.

The reader will find in the book a wealth of information and suggestions that will prove useful for the organisation of events large and small. The book is useful for orienteering clubs but also to partners in the fields of mobility, accommodation, energy and water provisioning, waste management, as well as to municipal authorities and sponsors.

The emphasis is on timely planning, open communication, learning by doing, continuous improvement. Many tips and suggestions address common challenges and issues that may emerge along the way. Finally, a simple and clear guide to the calculation of carbon emission is provided in plain language, that makes the process logic understandable by non-professionals.
