The climate emergency requires that we reduce our global greenhouse gas emissions by half by 2030 in order to avoid the worst impacts of climate change. Flying is the single largest source of greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) in academia and accounts for 3% of GHGs globally.

Join us as we discuss the why and how of flying less in the context of justice and capacity. Some interactive components will include breakout groups to identify barriers and solutions.
