The flight behaviour of academics is being perceived more and more as problematic. While scientists are increasingly referring to climate change (see here, for example), academics are flying around the world
more than ever for conferences, on-site research and fellowships. As a result, a sustainable science seems a distant prospect. The Young Academy has investigated how big the problem really is, what measures
Dutch universities are taking to reduce emissions from flying, and how effective these actually are.
