Pierwszy taki
The first such a climate summit

We do not accept greenwashing. Each of our actions has an impact on the environment, which is why we carefully approach the implementation of our activities, including the organization of a large event.

The event is organized in the spirit of less waste. We prove that even the event industry is able to cope with climate challenges and, by taking appropriate steps, reduce its impact on the environment. We operate in accordance with the idea of ​​not wasting: we reduce electricity consumption, we use recycled materials, we do not use disposable plastic and we focus on vegan catering. Our speakers travel to the venue by train. We calculate the carbon footprint of the entire event, including back office and logistics processes, and then neutralize it. This is why the CFS summit was awarded in the 2020 Zero Waste Cups competition.

Each event partner must undergo the so-called green audit to get involved in the CFS initiative. In accordance with the principle of transparency, we do not allow greenwashing, i.e. force greening. Thanks to the positive result of the audit, each partner of the event is nominated for the Carbon Footprint Challenge Awards.

It is difficult to take action without first exchanging experiences and inspiration. CFS creates space conducive to knowledge transfer and drives further changes. During the last edition of CFS, many ideas were born and business relationships were established, which now result in projects for sustainable development.

FJF Partner Area

In this area, you will meet the companies, which their activity support sustainability and strive to reduce their carbon emissions. It is a perfect place to talk with the representatives about the implementation of innovations

Panel discussion

The interchange of experiences takes place not only behind the scenes. On the CFS stages, business meets activists and scientists, to jointly discuss contemporary problems and proposals for their solutions.

Workshop area

For the participants to take good practices home, we have prepared many workshops that not only develop useful skills and develop imagination but also teach.

Electromobility area

We are taking a step into a low-carbon future. At CFS you will learn and experience the possibilities offered by electromobility, and not only from the perspective of climate protection.

Activism area

Here you will meet the activists who inspire you to act and share their experiences. If you want to get involved in climate protection - this is the perfect place to take the first step and sign the petition.

Plant-based area

Plant products have a much lower carbon footprint than those of animal origin. At Summit, you will taste veg products that are appreciated not only by 100% herbivores!

Music calls to action

The culmination of the event is going to be a concert of a famous and pro-ecological artist. Over 70 artists will meet on stage, and the special guests will be Fisz Emade and Misia Furtak.

Oxford debate

It is a form of professional discussion in which the teams debate the thesis. During CFS, teams will face the problem of ecological exclusion.

Art area

Summit is also a space for artists. There will be plenty of room at CFS for art that reflects our emotions and fears, including those related to the climate crisis.

Parents area

Summit is also a great place for the whole family. The prepared activities can be used not only by the youngest but also by their parents. We want to create a family-friendly atmosphere by combining education with fun.

Carbon Footprint Summit is not the only activity with a positive footprint. It is also a space for education and discussion about climate change with the experts from this discipline; it is a space for making contacts and for discovering scientific and career paths, and the last one: it is also a space full of inspiration. You have to be there!

How was it last time?

Last year's edition was a challenge for us. Not only because it was our debut, but also because of the necessity of maintaining the sanitary regime to provide safety for our participants. Despite the contrarieties, we gathered the great public online and stationary. Carbon Footprint Summit 2020 completed in a propitiously way, we have gained all of our planned conferences, lectures, and activities. The best proof for that was the community, which we have inspired to leaving just a positive footprint.

What inspired last year?

Carbon Footprint Summit is an event, which will inspire you with responsible practices for your business and the planet. Check out what our last-year partners talked about us:

Too Good To Go logo
CFS 2020 was an inspiring and interesting meeting - we are glad that we could be part of it! The great applause especially for coping with the challenges related to organizing an event in this difficult epidemiological time and with an esthetic and professional setting of an event.

Climate Summit CFS 2020 is an event, which we will remember for a long time in our minds. We are impressed with the organization of the event, especially this specific year; and the full engagement of volunteers. Partner Area FJF is primarily the great panel discussion and presentations, which we have listened to with pleasure. The whole event takes place in a passive building of Cracovian Hala Karcher (The Center of Disabled People) - due to the architecture of the building it was possible to organize the safety space, and in an easy way enforce the social distancing.
