Join us in this free course on Aviation Sustainability to kickstart your contribution to a more sustainable future for the aviation industry!
What the Course is About
While aviation plays a very important role in our mobility and our daily lives, we can no longer ignore the devastating climate impacts that we are experiencing from year to year. Droughts, wildfires, severe flooding and rising sea levels are slowly becoming the norm, and immediate and drastic action is required to avoid catastrophic climate impacts, and to protect the way of life of future generations. “Aviation Sustainability” is now on the agenda.
We have to take action now to make sure that aviation sustainability becomes a goal. RAVEN believes that a fundamental and intrinsic part of any solution is to create awareness. We have designed this free course to give you the basic local, regional and global environmental challenges, and how the aviation industry is playing a role in mitigating these challenges.
Students aspiring to work in aviation, graduates exploring the world of aviation sustainability, airline and airport staff, policy maker staff, and executive level staff looking for a basic understanding of the key challenges in the journey towards a more sustainable aviation industry.
