Hi all,

There has been a bit of interesting discussion on the conference_dev OSGeo
mailing list about environmental sustainability, and carbon footprint in

Wondering how people feel about using carbon offsets for FOSS4G SotM
Oceania 2019? We could either make it optional for people to add them to
their registration, or we could purchase them to offset the whole event,
and find a way to pay for it.

I don't yet have a clear idea of the cost, but this website

So we're looking at a total cost of maybe $2000 - 3000. Probably a little
early to make any real decision about this, but was curious to know if
people think this is potentially a good idea?
