During the pandemic, we have all had to get used to video conferencing tools and attending virtual events, and many of us are questioning how much of the travel that we used to do is truly essential.

Sustainable UCL

Join us for this webinar on becoming flight free!  

We will kick off the webinar with an introduction on what we are doing at UCL to reduce our carbon footprint, from the Trees of Life initiative to compensate for your carbon emissions to the UCL-wide carbon offsetting scheme. This will be followed by a talk by Anna Hughes, Director of Flight Free UK, covering topics such as alternatives to flying and “green” flights. We will also address the potential of people-powered campaigns to influence political policy and industry.

Please note, this session will be recorded for others, both internal and external to UCL, to watch in their own time.  

Please register via this email address, you will then soon be sent a Teams calendar invite.
