About Flight Free UK Edinburgh Group Open Meeting

Flying less is one of the most powerful ways we as individuals can reduce our carbon footprint, and with experts predicting that we have just a handful of years to take meaningful action on climate change, there has never been a better time to address the issue. Flight Free UK is a people-powered campaign which asks people to agree not to fly in the year of 2020 - knowing that 100,000 others have pledged to do the same.

The Flight Free UK Edinburgh Group will provide an open forum for discussion and exchange for anyone interested in how aviation contributes to the climate crisis, what we as individuals can do to tackle the problem, and how we can influence government to start to take action.

Our initial event will be held on 7 November starting at 7:30 pm in the Pleasance Music Room. Everyone is welcome, whether you haven't seen the inside of a plane for decades or whether you are (still) a Frequent Flyer!

The event is free, and attendees are welcome to bring food and drink to have during the meeting (no booze please). The venue is close to Nicolson Street, which has lots of food shops and supermarkets. There also is a bar at the venue selling food and drinks.

Don't worry if you can't make this meeting - we have another one lined up for 5 December. Going forward, we will be looking to hold open meetings about once a month. More details to follow, so watch this space!

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Flight Free UK Edinburgh Group Open Meeting are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
