We have inspired many thousands of people to take a year off flying. With your help we can inspire many thousands more!

It is hard to make a positive point out NOT doing something, especially as one lone voice. Flight Free pools my small effort with thousands of others', to amplify the effect. Also helps me prove my commitment at work – if they ask me to fly I can argue from principle, not just "being awkward".
Getting the message out there about the damage to the environment due to flying needs to be promoted more. I try to lead by example and have not flown in 15 years. Instead I have enjoyed many city/rural breaks in the UK (still so much of the country I have not visited) and city breaks in Amsterdam and Paris. Love the message that the team are putting out and want them to continue with the influencing.
Fingers crossed for increased action to de-clutter the atmosphere of heating gasses - aviation has to massively ramp down now as an emergency measure, good luck with your projects Flight Free x
We have to get the message across that flying is unsustainable and that rail, coach, and ferry alternatives, along with the Channel Tunnel, should be travellers first choice.
