“Sustainability is one of the most important issues to be addressed in our daily lives in Iceland. Sustainable development and reasonable usage of our natural resources is essential for our future welfare,” a press release reads.

At the conference exemplary practices to that purpose will be presented and the role of international volunteers in raising awareness of environmental sustainability will be discussed.

Kristín Linda Árnadóttir, the general director of the Environment Agency of Iceland, will give the opening speech, and journalist and environmentalist Ómar Ragnarsson will be the guest of honor.

The conference is being held in cooperation with the Icelandic Environment Association and the Environment Agency of Iceland. Admission is free.
