Flying Less Initiative

Flying Less Pledge and Commitments

As part of the Hessen-wide initiative "CO2 neutrale Landesverwaltung", scientists and students at the Justus Liebig University Giessen (JLU) established the working group Klimaneutrale Uni. The objective of this group is to propose adequate measures for achieving climate-neutrality of JLU. The Center for International Development and Environmental Research (ZEU), launches the Flying Less Initiative to stimulate the choice of sustainable travel alternatives and reduce the number of academic flights. With this pledge we commit ourselves to simple rules-of-thumb which will help us to fly less. This initiative is aimed at flying less. However, we acknowledge that other commitments, such as travelling to work on foot, by bike or public transportation instead of using a private car, can also contribute to a reduction in travel-related greenhouse gas emissions. Sign the voluntary self-commitment.
