Hosting events online through the Let's Get Digital platform makes knowledge more accessible for the whole world while saving CO2.
Users will be asked to give us an estimation of their location. The amount of CO2 saved will be calculated based on their location. The pop-up shows how much CO2 is saved yet during the event.
Visit our website to see the amount of trees saved by hosting events through our virtual platform!
Here is more information about the CO2 savings calculation:
By filling in from where you participate (in the platform) and where the event would have taken place if it wasn't digital (organisation details), the calculationn is based on average emissions at that distance, what the original emissions were, and this is what you saved.
The average emissions are based on this research: https://www.clo.nl/indicatoren/nl0134-koolstofdioxide-emissie-per-voertuigkilometer-voor-nieuwe-personenautos#:~:text=De%20CO2%2Duitstoot%20van,km%20in%202021%20te%20halen
And the calculation of distance is based on google and if google can't calculate it well (so with flights distance) we make our own calculations based on the following formula: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vincenty%27s_formulae
