Innovations and progress in flying less

Publicada em

Continuation of business as usual trends for aviation are incompatible with meeting national and international commitments to avoid dangerous climate change. Academics are increasingly leading by example in finding ways to pursue our research, collaborations, and teaching while reducing our flying and associated greenhouse gas emissions. Here I share some updates from around the world, but focused on Sweden and my department, LUCSUS for policies and strategies to reduce flying.
