Digital Be-In

Kevin Roebuck
Director, Digital Experience

The results are in from our sponsorship of the Digital Be-In event promoting Sun, Eco-Sustainability and virtual learning. Here are Michael's words of support.

To Sun: Thanks again for getting behind the Digital Be-In. You’ll be hearing more from us, but in the meantime a post-event note. We were all amazed and empowered by the success of Digital Be-In 15. We had 700+ paid and with guests, speakers, artists, staff etc. probably 900+ attending, and a few hundred online and in the Virtual Be-In. The Symposium was packed, 7 to 9, on a rainy Saturday night yet.

 

TOWARDS A CARBON-NEUTRAL EVENT!

Those people who purchased pre-sale tickets online through InTicketing.com were offered the opportunity to purchase Green Mountain Green-e certified renewable energy certificates, to offset their carbon use. The renewable energy used is 50% wind and 50% biomass, serving the national power grid. We are proud to announce that 23,000 kWh of Green Mountain Green-e certified renewable energy certificates were purchased for the Digital Be-In! That's 29,900 lbs of CO2 offset with renewable energy! Or the equivalent of 34,500 miles of driving offset!
