Aviation and the climate crisis

Aviation and the climate crisis

An inspiring evening of talks about aviation’s carbon impact, flight-free travel, and how people power can save the world.

Scientists give us little over a decade to slash our emissions, with the IPCC recommending an individual carbon output of 2.3 tons annually. One intercontinental flight can produce up to 1.6 tons of CO2, with a trans-Atlantic trip emitting up to 3 tons. There is no doubt that flying less is a vital part of our action on climate change.

Hear from our speakers about the climate impact of aviation, what difference individuals can make, what action the government needs to take, and if there is an answer to the coming crisis.
