The City of Tampere intends to be a pioneer in hosting sustainable events and has been actively greening events by, for example, advising event organizers to make events and the city more sustainable.
When a large group of people travel together for an event or meeting, they will inevitably use lots of resources. Therefore, we encourage all conference organisers and delegates to make sustainable choices.
In Tampere, the work for sustainable events started in 1992, when Tampere Hall, as one of the first conference centers in the world, launched sustainability programs and policies. In 2014, Tampere Hall became the first ever congress center to obtain the Nordic Ecolabel. Our vision is that Tampere will be widely known as one of the world’s best cities for organizing sustainable congresses and events.
