Although we are in the middle of an acute climate crisis, most of us continue to live our lives as usual. It’s not because we do not care, but because we humans tend to act like everyone else. The advantage of that is that if enough people take action, a change can happen fast.

The campaign Flight Free 2020 is a way in which we can together take responsibility to reduce air traveling. When you sign up for the campaign you pledge to stay on the ground next year – provided that 100,000 people from your country promise to do the same thing. 

To refrain from flying is one of the most powerful ways we as individuals can reduce our carbon footprint. If many of us do it together it will make a huge impact and we will also send a clear signal to our politicians – and also each other – that we are many who are willing to change our lifestyles in order to save the climate.

So far Flight Free 2020 is actively run in Sweden, The United KingdomDenmarkFrance, GermanyCanada, USAPeruAustralia and Slovenia. If you live in any of these countries, please sign up through their websites.

If you live elsewhere please make the pledge in the counter on this page.
