Powered by Montréal’s e180, a braindate is a 30-minute targeted learning meeting between two or more participants organized on the basis of offer, demand, common and opposite interests or points-of-view. Every element of the event is also designed to maximize meaningful connection opportunities that appeal to all participants — from the introverted to the gregarious.
The Road tests and the Micromobility track offer event participants the opportunity to discover and test prototypes of the latest vehicles and technologies. On Open Circuit, cutting-edge vehicles go into test mode as participants take them for a drive, and environmentally-minded people can try out a variety of eco friendly mobility options in the Micromobility track.
A certified eco-responsible event since 2017 (full report here) and in 2018, The Movin’On Summit is proud to be entirely carbon-neutral. In addition to carbon compensation, we implemented a number of sustainability-boosting measures to minimize the event’s environmental footprint. No single-use plastic water bottles are sold onsite; rather, water stations are made accessible to participants. Waste sorting and composting stations are also positioned around the site, and non-reusable dishes and cutlery are either recyclable or compostable. Numerous low-emission transportation options are presented to participants. The entire site is powered by hydroelectricity in order to reduce usage of fossil fuel-powered generators.
We have hit all of our 2018 targets (BNQ 9700-253/2010 level 3 maintained with a higher score than 2017, limiting final waste per participant, per day to 1.3 kg) with the exception of our reclamation rate. Partly due to the fact that we generated less total waste than in 2017, our result this year was 14% below target.
