PAWZ: Guest Speaker: Daniela Schoeb from Zurich Tourism

We take a cue from EARTH DAY to welcome our guest speaker Daniela Schoeb, Quality and Sustainability Manager with Zurich Tourism.

Since 2010, Zürich Tourism has been offsetting all non-avoidable CO2 emissions in collaboration with the myclimate foundation. Did you know that as a destination Zurich regularly dominates the top positions in global sustainability rankings - such as 1st place in the Arcadis Sustainable Cities Index 2016; and that Zurich is one of the most sustainable congress cities in the world, achieving the third highest number of points in the Global Destination Sustainability Index (GDS)?

We’ll learn more about Sustainability in Zurich – particularly in regards to the tourism sector. The presentation will be followed by a question & answer session and Apéro.

Payments can be made at the door. Fee includes a complimentary glass of Prosecco.
