In addition to choosing an ISO 14001 certified hotel in Singapore, IFES made use of onsite meeting rooms to tremendously reduce the amount of transportation required during the conference.

With multiple sessions, presentations, and panels, much of the program unpacked sustainability approaches in Singapore and South-East Asia raising awareness around what can and has been done.

IFES also emphasized a healthy lifestyle, organising a guided morning run around the Marina Bay area, a Tai Chi break, and a very active tourist program at the end of the World Summit. While the one group participating in the tourist program explored different green aspects of Singapore by bike, the others even contributed to it by fishing and collecting sea plastic around the city.
