    2. Context - sustainability
    “. . . The carbon footprint left by travel to these professional development events is considerable. One participant, travelling by air to a single conference, produces more CO2 emissions than many countries produce per capita in a year.”
    “Today, interactive technologies have evolved to a point that travel to many conferences and training programs is unnecessary or could easily be substituted . . . by the use of telecommunications technologies. Online conferences offer an environmentally friendly alternative that has shown to be both effective and economical.”
    Lynn Anderson and Terry Anderson, 2009
