RustLab for the Planet

At RustLab, we believe that creating a sustainable future is everyone's responsibility, and we're committed to doing our part. That's why we want to go to the direction of a zero-impact approach to organizing our conference.

A more sustainable RustLab

This is the way we are trying this year to enforce our commitment towards a more environmentally sustainable conference:

We planted a tree for every speaker coming at RustLab. These trees represent our effort to offset the carbon emissions from their travel to reach Florence for the conference. By planting trees, we’re helping to reduce our carbon footprint and combat the effects of climate change.

Instead of hundreds of plastic bottles and cups, thanks to our sponsors we will provide each attendee of a flask that could be refilled of water from the water dispensers.
We will also provide you an app that will guide you to a proper separate collection of waste. With this app you will always know what to waste and where!

We would try to convince you - where possible - to reach Florence by train instead of by plane or by car. Those who will come here by train (showing us their train ticket as a proof) will take part to a contest where they can win a crab puppet and be crowned as "RustLab environmental hero"!

We want to inspire our community to join us in taking action to protect our planet. Together, we can make a difference and create a better future for generations to come.
