“Human connection and real-life experience have never been more important, yet we face an impending climate emergency which necessitates rapid innovation in the way we do things. With 80% of event carbon emissions deriving from travel – ecolibrium presents a uniquely collaborative and effective industry response and road map to meaningful change.” Jessica Parish, Trustee ecolibrium
