Do you want to do something really positive for the climate together with people from all over the world? Sign up for the Flight Free 2022 campaign and challenge everyone you know to do the same!

Staying on the ground is one of the most important things we as individuals can do for the climate. It is a very effective way to quickly reduce our emissions, and an even bigger effect lies in how this decision impacts those around us. We humans are strongly influenced by each other’s behaviour. As more people show that we are prepared to do what it takes to solve the climate crisis, more will follow. Together we can reduce emissions, change the norm and lay the foundations for a strong climate policy.

The Flight Free 2022 campaign is also run by Flight Free UK and Flight Free USA. If you are a UK or US resident you will be part of their campaign and receive their updates.

We will be flight free in 2022 – will you?

These stories are written by people who pledged to be flight free in 2021 – and they will all be part of Flight Free 2022 as well. Do you want to share your story? Please send it to info@westayontheground.org.
