Traditional conferences have a surprisingly large CO2 footprint. According to a recent study by researchers at the UCSB nearly one-third of CO2 emissions produced by university campuses come from flying to conferences and other academic related events. This conference is an opportunity to stimulate discussion about sustainable research in its many forms as well as address the question of how we as an academic community can work together to learn how to better mobilize ideas without flying so many people.
