The site update is part of a new publicity push beginning Aug 23, 2021. Please circulate the new website to your friends and colleagues. If you support ambitious climate action for university and research communities, while preserving the good we do in the world, then please help us publicize this initiative.
We hope you will enjoy the third annual New Year’s Eve Eve party on #flyingless themes, at 4pm Eastern (9pm UK) Dec 30, with toasts and good cheer for 2021 from around the world. Here below is a Zoom registration link and a video from the previous year.
This format of online video presentations with asynchronous text discussion, while preserving the sense of a time-limited event, has been developed and refined since 2016 by the Environmental Humanities Institute at the University of California Santa Barbara. This particular conference is sponsored by UCSB’s Environmental and Climate Justice Hub in cooperation with the Center for Climate Justice at UC Merced.
In that 2016 session, Joe spoke about the false characterization of flying-less initiatives as “self-righteous, self-referential, ascetic bullshit.” And I introduced our approach to setting goals and measuring progress for flying less in academic communities.
