Link to Policy >>

What I actually wanted to send you: our university has a policy in place that tries to reduce plane transport by the staff. All our travel bookings have to go through a central office and this office has a list of cities to which we cannot fly anymore, we are obliged to take the train. More information here: https://www.ugent.be/nl/univgent/waarvoor-staat-ugent/duurzaamheidsbeleid/projecten/duurzaamreisbeleid/travelpolicy

I think I do not belong on the noflyclimatesci list because I just stick to the regulations of my university (that I also support), so it is less of a conscious choice compared with other people on the list. Therefore I would prefer my story not to be published, but I just wanted to let you know about the policy here.
