Greener food

What is the S.M.A.R.T. food concept?

A S.M.A.R.T. way to have lunch! Avoid both blood sugar dips and the otherwise unavoidable energy dips with our S.M.A.R.T. food concept with a good menu that is specially developed to keep energy levels high during your whole conference. It is nutritious, good and gives you a real energy kick when you need it most.

Take a S.M.A.R.T. break! When you take a snack break your health and the environment is out focus. We bake all our bread with sourdough in our own bakery and everything we serve follows the restaurant’s ecolabelling.

Morning snacks: Make your own low carb sandwiches with our home baked sourdough bread. We offer whipped k-labelled butter and you can choose between topping such as cheese, lettuce, peppers, cucumbers and fruits. All vegetables and herbs are locally produced at Hällnäs commercial farm near Umeå.

Afternoon snacks: Pick and choose between our nutritious and locally produced selection of afternoon snacks. Boost your energy with our energy bars or other sweeter baked goods for those longing for sweeter pastries. Something for you, something for everyone. We offer red tea and KRAV-labelled coffee with our afternoon snacks.

Be full, active and alert with S.M.A.R.T. food.

More green, less empty calories, more organic goods and a small carbon footprint.

Greener accommodations

Stay at environmental hotels!

We work with several nice hotels in our vicinity. We book rooms at hotels that are just right for you and most of them are just a short walking distance from Umeå Folkets Hus. You can choose whether participants will pay the lodging costs themselves directly at the hotel or whether it will be included in the registration fee.

Hotel Scandic Plaza In 1993 Scandic decided to become a leading player in sustainability and to further the development of sustainability within the industry. “Hang-up-the-towel” is one of Scandics innovative ideas within sustainability.
