The Frequent Flyer Academy: how can we limit plane travel?

Welcome to a KTH Sustainability Pubnight at Restauranglabbet February 20th, 17:00-19:00.

Universities are under pressure to reduce the climate impacts of their operations and air travel is an activity that contributes some of the highest emissions. Academic flying is often justified on the basis that participation in international arenas and travel are important to the production and sharing of new knowledge. But even if that is true, we still need to limit the footprint also of knowledge production. How can that be achieved, what are central arguments and what are the possible consequences?

Time: Thu 2020-02-20 17.00 - 19.00

Lecturer: Daniel Pargman KTH, Elina Eriksson KTH, Maria Wolrath Söderberg SH and Nina Wormbs KTH
