Green + non-profit

As an annual event with over 5000 participants, we think a lot about how we can be as environmentally-friendly as possible. 

During the conference we use eco-friendly certificated hotels, we print (where necessary) on recycled paper, serve local produce for lunch, use eco-taxis, and rely where possible on digital communication forms.

We are proud to be a non-profit concern, organised by Stavanger University Hospital Mental Health Services, the Mental Health Foundation and a range of statutory and non-statutory bodies. You can rest assured that your conference fee goes wholly to cover the costs of the conference and is not used for private gain.
