We’ve gathered some of the leading voices in the UK’s eco ski movement to discuss in a free-access online seminar how we can ALL take actions to ski a bit greener once the slopes re-open for season 2020/21.
From the clothes we wear, the way we travel and how we maintain our kit, to the changes being made by resorts – our expert panel of ski businesses and lobbyists will be highlighting the ways we as consumers can take positive action to reduce our impact and help protect the mountains we love to visit.
Our webinar (11am-12 noon on Friday June 5, 2020) will help you understand more about where the issues lie and how small things can make a big difference. Plus you’ll take away some easy-to-implement top tips on how to ski greener next season.
CE Week London 2020
The event is part of a programme of seminars organised to mark this year’s ‘virtual’ CE Week London, with subjects ranging from fashion to building, finance to babies. The WhoSki.com panel will be promoting the broad #SkiGreen agenda.
Our webinar brings you a series of snappy, enlightening presentations from our expert panellists, followed by a Q&A session. Please feel free to submit questions in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org or ask questions during the #CEWeekLDN event (register for FREE to watch/listen and take part).
We’ll be outlining the ways in which skiers and snowboarders can reduce their impact on the environment before, during and after a trip to the slopes, including their wardrobe, travel options, destinations and actions while on the piste. The circular economy, recycling and sustainability are all key.
