ENSE firmly believes in the benefit of exchange and cooperation to not only develop the field of sport education, but to build bridges between people of different backgrounds.
Though the Covid-19 pandemic has forced many to stay put, travel will nonetheless return as an essential part of that exchange and cooperation. However, we are also not blind to the negative environmental impact caused by travel. Thus, on November 11th 2020, the ENSE Board approved a new Green Travel Policy that applies to all travel paid through ENSE.
According to the new Green Travel Policy, all travel that can be completed by train, one-way, in 5 hours or less will be done by train or road. Added to that, when available at reasonable costs, travelers will endeavor to book recognized, sustainable accommodation. ENSE will also donate 10 EUR per return flight to a recognized carbon offset provider.
Our new policy aims to ensure that all aspects of travel including vehicle rental, lodging, local transportation and allowances for meals and incidentals are regulated in a way that they cause the least negative environmental impact possible.
You are welcome to review the policy here. Organisations are also welcome to use this as a template for their own policies. Critical, constructive feedback is also welcome via info (a) sporteducation.eu.
