Servas and Climate Change

As part of the upcoming Servas International Conference and General Assembly (SICOGA) to be held in Seoul, South Korea this October, the Servas International Executive agreed to add the following words to the SICOGA 2018 invitation letter and materials:
Bearing in mind the ecological footprint of an event such as SICOGA 2018 on the world’s
environment, SI Exco will make every effort feasible to minimize its impact. More information about what these efforts will mean, in concrete terms, will be announced later.

This notice is timely as in anticipation of the upcoming meetings, Servas Canada submitted a motion dealing with this issue of travelling in this period of climate change. So there will be exciting opportunities to discuss this very important humanitarian and environmental issue in Seoul.
