I don’t fly for work anymore. One of the benefits of the pandemic was normalizing video-conferencing, something I (and a few others) had been promoting for a while. Like many academics, my nuclear family lives far away from extended family, and this is our greatest no-fly challenge. We fly less often and stay for longer (normalizing remote work was another pandemic benefit) and prioritize the lowest carbon option (e.g., direct flights to within near distances and making up the rest with trains or buses).
My work focuses mainly on evidence-informed health policy and integrated knowledge translation. I use the social determinants of health as the guiding model for my work, a stable climate being a still mostly unrecognized but fundamental determinant that needs to be prioritized in health policy (as well as everything else).
