1st International GATE Conference

1st International GATE Conference

Date  September 08, 2017Details  GATE 2018 Breaks new ground with global "no-travel" design
We launched GATE, held our first AGM, and elected the first Trustees and Members AND carried out a Shift Project. GATE is an international organization, but we didn't want people to have to fly to the conference. Thus we organized an e-conference with venues in New Zealand and UK, and live webfeed to people around the world. We reduced the greenhouse gas emissions by more than 80% AND we all slept better. Other benefits included much higher attendance, and not having to go through airport security screening.
