New Directions II is proud to be a Monash sustainable event.  We are committed to ensuring our event operates with a lighter footprint and is held according to best energy, water, waste, transport and procurement practice.

To find out more visit the Monash Environmental Sustainability page.

Our conference will provide 100% vegetarian (and at least 50% plant-based), locally-sourced catering from the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre in Fitzroy and the Simple Seed Eatery in South Yarra.

We will use biodegradable cups/cutlery where necessary.

We will provide only fair-trade tea and coffee and filtered tap water (no bottled water) and we encourage you to make use of water filling stations at Caulfield campus . 

Conference delegates will also be encouraged to bring a keep cup for tea and coffee.

Organic plant-based milks will also be provided.

Participants will be encouraged to take public transport to and from the venue.

We are also reducing paper waste by providing an electronic conference program only.
