On February 27, 2020, our Facebook group reached a new landmark. Kath Bilsborough, founding member and one of the ELT Footprint admin team, looks back over all the things that have happened since our membership turned the 2000 mark on November 3, 2019.
Yesterday (Friday December 6), I travelled to Madrid to join the climate march that was organized to coincide with the COP25 summit. According to the reports, there were more than 500,000 people at the march, and it was a humbling experience to be one small drop in that ocean of climate activism.
We are delighted with the ongoing dialogue ELT Footprint is having with IATEFL about their environmental commitment. They are busy working to make the organisation a brighter shade of green. This includes engaging with exhibitors at the annual conference to make sure that they are aware of IATEFL’s new policies and making sure their Exhibitors’ Handbook reflect these policies. Check out their IATEFL2020_Exhibition Environmental Awareness poster with some great suggestions.
