What's the harm in flying? [Free online LCON event] @ Online event

What is the true contribution of flying to climate change? How does flying affect my personal carbon footprint? Why do people currently fly and where do they go? If we have to cut back, how can we do this fairly? How has the pandemic affected flying emissions? And what are the prospects for low-carbon flights?

At a time when the government is pinning its hopes for the future of aviation on new technology, these questions are more pressing than ever. This event explores the environmental realities of flying alongside its psychological appeal and emotional power. Flying, after all, fulfils aspirations, facilitates cultural exchange and brings families and friends together. So what is the harm? Join our free webinar on 19 November, 7.30-9.00pm. We are delighted to welcome Dr Sally Cairns from the Institute for Transport Studies at the University of Leeds, and our trustee Rebecca Nestor.

The event is open to all. Further details and joining instructions (through Zoom) will be emailed to participants nearer the time.
