Do you feel a twinge of eco-guilt when you book that flight?
When you fill up your van at the gas station before a long road trip?
Do you worry about reducing your carbon footprint, knowing that your travel adds to the climate crisis?
Most of us are too addicted to travel to stop and rethink how we go about it. Our speaker Andy (a biology professor and leader of sustainable programs at Minerva University) is on a mission to figure out net-zero travel and wants to share what he’s learned thus far, so we can take the same steps in our own *travel* lives.
In this workshop, we’ll start with a travel plan and then implement five strategies to make it more climate-friendly. We encourage everyone to bring their own travel plan to try the strategies themselves.
Traveling less is one way to be more sustainable, but you’ll learn how to reduce your trip’s carbon footprint by traveling… (dare we say it) MORE!
…and much more!
Andy Dosmann is an Austin-based biology professor who teaches critical thinking and problem-solving at Minerva University, where students travel around the world together for their undergraduate education. He leads Minerva’s sustainability programs.
Andy’s also the founder of StayVerde, which helps travelers travel more sustainably. He caters to those who worry about the climate crisis… but don’t want to stay home. Like himself. He met his wife in Kenya on a failed scientific expedition studying African lions, and last year they celebrated Andy’s 50th state (and their 10th anniversary) with a trip to Hawaii. Andy is not ready to give up traveling, so he’s devising creative solutions to minimize travel’s impact on the climate crisis.
