Globally, emissions from air travel account for 3% of all greenhouse gas emissions, which must be addressed in line with climate change advice from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). As travel behaviours across the world are now returning to normal following easing of COVID-19 restrictions, we are taking a look at the progress that is being made in research, innovation and policies supporting decarbonising the aviation sector.

Aviation Reimagined is an annual webinar series featuring industry leaders, policymakers and researchers sharing their insights about a transition to a low-carbon future for aviation. This is the third consecutive year running this successful series, with new speakers and contributors delivering innovative insights from around the world.

The webinar series commences Thursday 22 September 3-4:30 pm AEST and continues weekly across six sessions. During each session, you’ll hear from three subject matter experts, as well as a 20-minute question and answer session for you to submit your questions to our panel.

Reimagining Aviation is facilitated by Dr Emma Whittlesea from Griffith’s Climate Ready Initiative, and Professor Tim Ryley from Griffith Aviation. The sessions will be supported by co-facilitators Professor Susanne Becken, from Griffith’s Institute for Tourism; Keith Tonkin of Aviation Projects; Michael Burke of Biofutures Queensland; and Dr Michael Kane from the University of Queensland.

We invite you to join us for one or all of our free sessions investigating the latest developments towards decarbonising flight.
