SUSTAINABILITY

Our strong sense of environmental responsibility has guided many of the decisions around the Student Global Leadership Conference, in line with FIE's values. Every effort has been made to ensure that materials are ethically and responsibility sourced, including the catering used throughout the conference, and printed/promotional materials.
