I have newly had a baby which, alongside the general peak in pubic concern, has made me want to take action over climate change. I live in Norway but am from the UK which poses a challenge as there are not very many easy alternatives from Norway. My husband and I would like to purchase an electric car to make these journeys although this would take several days. He is an environmental psychologist and I have been shocked by the requirement to fly to other countries to partake in a climate change conference!
This poses challenges for junior researchers who do not want to jeopardize their career but do not want to contribute to climate change. Make conferences digital!
I also feel its time to stop flying for holidays, especially long haul. I can’t believe we still do this!
