Green and inclusive academic meetings - do you pledge to support them?
The pandemic has changed the way academics meet for conferences, seminars and collaborations. Travel has radically reduced, while virtual modes of meeting have become the norm. Whilst this was a forced change, virtual academic meetings do have their advantages: they have a low carbon footprint, and are more inclusive if organised well.

With the gradual return of the possibility to travel, it is time to take stock. Are you happy to pledge to keep supporting virtual meeting opportunities as much as possible? If so, please do so using this form!
