Attendees
Attendees are invited to make monetary donations to help offset the emissions caused by their participation in this event. A $15 donation purchases enough emission reductions to offset the average emissions caused by one attendee's travel, lodging, meals, and event activities. The monetary donations received are used by Leonardo Academy to purchase and retire renewable energy certificates (RECs) to help offset the emissions of this event. All renewable energy certificates purchased are Green-E certified renewable energy certificates from wind energy.
