FLIGHT FREE 2020 NOW IN BELGIUM

Flight Free 2020 is spreading to more countries! This is Nour who recently started the campaign in Belgium. This is her story:

Since I was a child, I have always traveled. In the past few years, I took it to a whole other level, by making it my lifestyle, living on the road, not really having a set home. I was flying a lot.

I knew that flying wasn’t that great, but I thought that the rest of my lifestyle (veganism, low waste, sustainable fashion, etc) was compensating for it. That was until I was faced with the truth in October 2018. The numbers were brought to my attention, I calculated my carbon emissions, from flying, of the past 2 years, and I couldn’t unlearn what I had just come across. Solely from my flying, I was one of the biggest polluters on the planet. There was no way I could justify that. I wasn’t flying because I NEEDED to, I was flying because I WANTED to. It was time for a change. I did my research, and realised that barely anyone knows about how bad flying truly is. I then came across the Flight Free campaign in Sweden and absolutely loved the idea, wishing it would be brought to other countries. So, when I learned that the campaign was trying to expand to other countries, it was a no brainer: I had to bring it to the country I live in, Belgium.

This is how it all started, how I got here, and why I’m doing what I do. The world needs to be aware of the truth, and people need to be given information in order to make choices.
