EastPragueEGEA Praha welcomes EGEA Kharkiv25/10/201729/10/201766
Apart from historical tours and excursions both in and outside of Prague (led by either professional guide or by us), we had an excursion to a Map Collection of Faculty of Science (our home faculty), which is the most significant university map collection in Central Europe.
No, all costs were covered by members of the hosting entity.
I think that things that you can influence during such an event and they have some real impact on the environment, are mainly means of transport and structure of the diet. We didn't use cars at all, in the city of Prague we mainly used our feet to move around or the public transport (mostly metro and trams). When we had a trip to Kutná Hora and Žleby Chateau, we got to both places (and back to Prague) by a train. Our diet was based on fruit and vegetable snacks and some of the main meals were meat-free. We hate leftovers, so if we had e.g. a dinner in a restaurant, we tried to eat everything, regardless who left what. We also tried to produce as least waste as possible. When we used plastic dishes (it happened just once), they were made from plants not plastic and they were completely compostable.

EastOstravaCzechoslovakian TeamBuilding Weekend vol.316/11/201719/11/2017226422
Scientific content was a bit suppressed because of the character of this event (team-building and introducing newbies). However, the participants should gain a basic knowledge about the region of Šumperk and the specific socio-geographic awareness. Moreover, there was a presentation about expulsion of Germans after WWII and its consequences, followed by workshop on this topic. Participants had to work in groups and find a solution for the consequences of this ethnical/national displacement.
We obtained support mainly from our university - University of Ostrava. The university, specifically faculty of science, paid our costs for accommodation, food, materials for workshop and they provided the university related merchandise we used as prizes for winning our competitions.
We were accommodated in the "Ecological education center" so we can be 100% sure that the event was as green as possible, we can guarantee compliance of the "zero-waste" politics, all of our trash was either recycled or naturally decomposed. We used bus for transport when we had to move for bigger distance, otherwise we were walking only.

EuromedZadarPre-AC 201815/09/201818/09/2018412012
As it is known that the main theme of Annual Congress 2018 was "Realize Rural", we tried to make our Pre-AC 2018 connected to rurality as well. For this reason, we organised a lecture named "Rural settlements on small Croatian islands - places of utopia or dystopia?" which was held by our university professor Anica Čuka. The lecture lasted for 45 minutes and the feedback of our participants was really good (questions, talks, etc.). We didn't do normal scientific output like posters, videos, presentations, etc. but what we did was the excursion to one of the islands nearby (Ugljan) where we had a chance to experience rurality of Croatian island life which was explained during the lecture.
We had few sponsors talking about food and drinks on the local level. Also, our University supported us by giving us the travel refund for travelling to Krka National Park by bus and by financing entrance tickets for Krka National Park.
We did our best to stay as green as possible, so during our accomodation in the hostel, participants had to sort the litter in separate boxes. Also, there were more glass bottles (we avoided using plastic bottles). Talking about transportation, we didn't use the public transport, so we walked through the city. It took us some time, but it was better for participants and also for environment.
