Synopsis
  • No Fly Climate Sci is an online platform to raise the public sense of urgency regarding climate and aviation.
  • Students can read about Earth scientists, academics, institutions, and members of the public who are choosing not to fly or are flying less due to climate change.
Teaching Tips

Positives

  • The interactive map is easy to navigate and visually displays the people and organizations around the world who have joined the cause.
  • The resource includes stories of youth who have committed to fly less or not at all, which could be especially relatable and inspiring for students.

Additional Prerequisites

  • Students should have basic knowledge about the impacts of aviation on climate change. Teachers can use the Stay Grounded information page to establish this background.
  • When navigating the map, students can click on any No Fly icon to read the bio of that individual.

Differentiation

  • The resources tab includes a list of research articles that students can explore to learn more about the topic.
  • Students can research different solutions for the impacts of air travel and assess their potential effectiveness.
  • If students are interested, they can join the cause and submit their stories to be shared on the site.
  • With younger students, teachers can explore the site with them as a class and read aloud some particularly inspiring stories.
Scientist Notes
There is no contradiction in the map. Views and projections are appropriate. Resource is recommended for teaching.
