The WordPress London Meetup has always been an event that brings us closer together in real life and away from our screens. In these times we recognise that some may not want to spend additional time at their screens in the evening, to be part of a #WPLDN event. So #WPLDN Daytime will be a trimmed down version of the Virtual #WPLDN events we've now come to know and love. With a speaker and an element of socialising, take an hours break at lunchtime and join the #WPLDN Daytime team.

✍️ Tips on how to reduce the carbon emissions of your WordPress website

Did you know that the internet is thought to produce about the same carbon emissions as the aviation industry? And if the internet was a country it would be the sixth biggest polluter in the world. Shocking isn’t it?

With nearly 35% of all websites being WordPress websites, as a community, we have a fantastic opportunity to play a role in reducing emissions and spreading awareness of the impact of our online habits.

In this talk, we’ll understand how to measure the carbon emissions of your website. We’ll look at techniques you can use to lessen your impact, whether you are responsible for their creation in some way as a developer, designer or content creator. Not only will these techniques help your green credentials, but you will also produce faster-loading sites that your visitors and search engines will love.
