Aviation and the Climate Crisis

Flight Free UK invites you to an evening of talks and discussion surrounding the impacts of aviation, flight free travel and people power is taking place at the Eric Liddell Centre on 17th October!

Aviation and the Climate Crisis

About Aviation and the Climate Crisis

An inspiring event exploring the climate impact of aviation, flight-free travel, and whether 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. Some say that's optimistic and we should be looking at no more than 1 ton each.

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.

Speakers:

BEN TWIST - Creative Carbon Scotland
ANNA HUGHES - Flight Free UK
KEN RICE - University of Edinburgh
BEN PARKER - Scottish Greens

What to expect:

An inspiring and informative evening with short talks and presentations covering a range of topics. There will be a chance to ask questions to our panel, and a chance to network after the talks.

This event is part of the no-fly movement and is hosted by Flight Free UK. It is open to all and we encourage people from all sectors to attend and debate the issues.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Aviation and the Climate Crisis are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
