According to the sustainability report from DrupalCon Lille 2023 by Terra Verde, transport accounted for 93.7% of the event's carbon footprint. 

While traveling is unavoidable, we are listing here some tips and recommendations that you may consider to reduce your environmental impact for DrupalCon Barcelona 2024.

At DrupalCon Lille 2023, the DrupalCon Europe organizers decided to embark on a new journey towards a more sustainable event. We joined forces with Terra Verde, a sustainability consultancy agency, to guide and support us along the way.
Several initiatives have been implemented to have a positive impact on our environment and enhance the experience of our participants. While this approach was far from easy, we are convinced that it is essential for the future of DrupalCon Europe, the industry, and, quite simply, our planet as we know it.

Get Ready for the Next Driesnote at DrupalCon Barcelona!

Recently at DrupalCon Portland 2024, Dries Buytaert announced a thrilling new project called Drupal Starshot. This initiative redefines the default version of Drupal by building in tools for easy installation and extensibility from the browser, right from the start.

We all know how awesome it is to launch a fresh, new website to the world. Why not share these wonderful success stories with the world?  

DrupalCon gives you that opportunity. Every year we put Drupal showcases from all over the world on the big screen before and after major sessions in the main auditorium. And we need your submission too! Send us your best project you’ve launched in 2023 or 2024 , and your website could be featured just before the Driesnote!

The Drupaljam organizers are excited to share something special that you might enjoy!
This year at Drupaljam’s Open Up, we've added an extra track featuring four sessions dedicated to open source, collaboration, and community. We aim to engage in discussions, share ideas, and learn together in an open setting hosted by 3-4 people, inviting all attendees to participate actively.

The sessions include:
