Welcome to the July newsletter of Stay Grounded!
This is a holiday season like no other. While some countries are recovering from Covid-19, the pandemic is increasing in others, with new outbreaks in some. Air traffic is still enormously affected by the situation and the industry has used it to further water down its climate rules - as we feared.
However, there are also many positive things: many people have found new ways to connect, work and travel in recent months. What once seemed utopian is now becoming a serious alternative. We describe a few of them in this issue of our newsletter. Also, our movement has gained strength and the aviation’s dirty business became more visible for many.
We would like to ask you for something this time: many of us stopped flying a long time ago, for some of us the pandemic was an impulse to do so. Let us stay on the ground for the climate and our future - and take the Let’s Stay Grounded pledge to make it visible!
This is our last newsletter before a short summer break in August. Enjoy reading it!
