How to get to the venue

Emissions offset and travel by train

The EMS recognizes that personal travel to the EMS Annual Meetings likely represents the largest contribution to the carbon footprint of our event. In the effort to reduce emissions, we ask meeting participants to consider measures to offset the climate impacts of travelling to the EMS2022.

We encourage all participants of the conference to investigate possibilities to travel to Bonn by train. Below are links that provide some information on options to travel to Bonn by train.

In any case, you may wish to consider offsetting travel-related emissions by donations to solar, biomass, or energy-efficiency projects through Atmosfair or other similar organisations.
