Carbon Offsets for Virtual Participation?
While participating in General Assembly online results in a much smaller carbon footprint – mainly by eliminating the need to travel – there is still a carbon impact from using computer equipment, wired and wireless internet to stream video, and various other ways that we communicate electronically over the days of GA. To this end, the online registration fee includes a carbon offset of $3 per person. GA has a solid history of offsetting carbon emissions. Let’s keep it up!
