Welcome to the first newsletter of Stay Grounded! Many thanks to all those who have joined us recently – and to all of you who have been supporting a reduction of aviation and climate justice for longer.
The world has changed over these last weeks due to the COVID-19 pandemic throwing all our best laid plans up in the air. Globally, most aircraft are grounded for the time being. However, the aviation industry is already preparing for the time after the corona crisis, demanding billions in bailouts from taxpayers' money and trying to water down social and environmental regulations. We are fighting back against this with our latest campaign #SavePeopleNotPlanes.
In this newsletter you will find details on the campaign, an update from the Stay Grounded Network, our new report "Degrowth of Aviation", Stay Grounded in the media, as well as news articles about the aviation industry and its future.
We hope you will enjoy reading it and stay grounded!
The Stay Grounded team
