Sustainability has become an increasingly important topic in today's world and goes beyond environmental concerns – includes social and economic dimensions. DrupaCon Lille 2023 Organizers are committed to deliver more sustainable conference with positive impact to everyone. We are happy to partner with Terra Verde who supports us towards our sustainable mission. 

“Sustainable tourism should not be considered a special form of tourism, rather all forms of tourism should strive to become more sustainable.” OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation & Development).
