Here is a list of the actions we have taken to create an event with minimal impact on the environment:

The purpose of the TREE Project is to symbolically offset the greenhouse gas emissions that results from the transportation needs of a major Canadian event by planting community trees within Canadian Biosphere Reserves (UNESCO). The 2019 edition of the TREE Project has partnered with the "Canadian Parks Conference 2019" and will offset its emissions in the Charlevoix Biosphere Reserve, located less than 100 kilometers from the site of the event, in the heart of the inhabited forest * of the MRC de Charlevoix.

* The inhabited forest, a concept initiated in 1995 by the Government of Québec, is a sustainable development approach that puts forward the multiple resources of the forest, taking into consideration all the forest’s potential (heritage, recreation, fauna, flora, forest management) and which is based on community consultation. There are currently 15 inhabited forests in Québec.
