It is already clear that this conference will be sold out, such has been the level of interest. Our capacity is only about 350 participants due to the various limitations of our accommodation, catering and venues. So registration is by application because we seek engaged participants who are passionately committed to addressing climate change with real action. And we also wish to include a diverse and balanced range of interests.
The image below is a plan of the auditorium of the Universal Hall at Findhorn. It has a capacity of about 350. The graphic is symbolic, showing the range of ‘voices in the room’ we wish to achieve. This is the principle of ‘the big tent’, borrowed from party politics, whereby diverse viewpoints, backgrounds and interests are brought together to engage and dialogue.
If you wish to attend the conference and believe that you strongly represent one of these ‘voices’, (or perhaps another that is not listed), then please don’t hesitate to contact us with an application to attend. Email email@example.com or simply use the contact form. Your application need only be one or two paragraphs long and include something of your background, roles, activities, interests and passions related to climate change. We also wish to hear how you might take whatever you harvest from the conference back to your networks, neighbourhoods, communities, business associates etc., whatever your circle of associates happens to be.
Please note that the conference fee is £1290 / £1020 / £840 (self-selected according to income), which includes full board for 7 days (accommodation and meals). Our standard accommodation is shared rooms in Findhorn Foundation buildings. Options include booking a single room at extra cost or hostel type accommodation at reduced cost. We have a limited bursary scheme available to people with low income and savings, available on a first-come-first-served basis. Once our 180 guest beds are filled, participants will need to find their own accommodation (in local B&Bs, hotels, hostels, camping etc.), in which case, they will receive a price reduction of £30/night.
The Findhorn community has recently developed its own carbon offsetting platform to enable residents and guests to offset the carbon emissions created by their travelling to and from Findhorn. We strongly encourage participants in CCC19 to consider this option. Please go here to calculate and offset your emissions. If you would like more background information about carbon offsetting, please go here. And if you wish to know more about how your offsetting contribution will be distributed, here is a description of the certified projects that benefit from our scheme.
