Communication is one of the corner stones of successful research. Exchanging ideas, presenting recent results and setting up collaborations has allowed all sciences to develop to the great levels they are today.
To tackle the challenges of climate change we will have to find new ways to keep communication for all scientists at a high level without affecting the climate. Flights to meetings combined with indirect cost of meetings comprises for many research organization over 50% of their CO2 footprint. As scientist, teachers, citizens we have a clear obligation to show that change is possible and that science communication can be organized in a more sustainable manner.
We have all have seen the change during the Covid-19 pandemic and we as Climate@MaxPerutzLabs want to help to build back better. During the E-symposium we will discuss how to measure your footprint of travels, highlight  strategies how to avoid air travel and provide alternatives like video conferencing and train travel. Please join us.
