Professor Nives Dolšak was recently interviewed on NPR’s “On point” discussing travelling responsibly. She and her co-author, Aseem Prakash, Professor and Director of the Center for Environmental Politics, have been advocating for responsible academic professional flying. In March 2018, they wrote a piece in Huffpost entitled “The Climate Change Hypocrisy Of Jet-Setting Academics”. Since then, they have been writing and working with the UW and their professional associations on how to devise policies that would enable and induce responsible professional flying.
On July 9, they gave an interview for the Washington post on “Flight Shame”. They recently published a piece on KLM’s new “Fly responsibly” campaign on Forbes.com . We look forward to seeing how their efforts impact academic professional travel.
