Code of Conduct

Sustainable Connections creates thriving communities through innovative ideas, collaboration, and action—and we aim to make all our events a better party. Please help us do this by following our Code of Conduct at events.


  • Be kind and considerate.
  • Respect all community members. This includes appearance, name, identity, orientation, actions, and ideas.
  • Follow the rules of the venue.
  • Follow the law.
  • Refrain from offensive language.

If you witness or are subjected to unacceptable behavior or have any other concerns, notify a Sustainable Connections staff member (or volunteer) as soon as possible. If you have questions regarding the Sustainable Connections Event Code of Conduct or its implementation, please contact our events coordinator:
