- Is global development research inherently more carbon-intensive than other research? Is carbon-neutral research actually achievable?
- Could global development research be just as effective if done on a lower-carbon model? Are there any downsides to lower-carbon approaches, e.g. for partners in the Global South?
- Is it hypocritical to be promoting equitable and sustainable societies while being a frequent flyer? How feasible is it to replace air flight with ground travel for global development researchers?
- Is a low-carbon research model incompatible with career development and promotion which emphasises the importance of international activities and collaborations? Should we prioritise air travel for early career researchers over senior academics?
We look forward to seeing you there. Tea and coffee will be provided, but don't forget to bring your own cup! For more information contact: email@example.com
