I mean outside vacation spot choices, what is the organization saying to do to go overseas, in order to help the environment?

The alternative to flying for me would be not seeing my grandchildren.

But for this movement, I think they are encouraging people to vacation near home.

Heal the environment by stopping all the dirty coal fired and dirty oil fired manufacturing facilities in China and okayed by Trump in the USA.

That is a bigger impact to clean air.

Heal the environment? Start by setting a good example: DON’T HAVE CHILDREN!

Virtual Reality. Upload your mind to the internet.

Take a staycation instead of a world trip.

Some options, as may fit your situation:

Take a train.

Take fewer more extended trips rather than many short ones.

Explore places that are closer to you.

Did they make the solar plane more feasible yet?

The alternative to flying is wooden ships. Are we ready for that?

They want you to trade in your carbon footprint for a new footprint.

Take a boat with no engine over seas? like a canoe. Canoe all the way to Japan

The Vikings did it!

@SergeantQueen
There is this whacky sci-fi concept out there. You may have heard of it.
They call it a “sail”.

SergeantQueen's avatar

Yes but Canoes are more fun.

A catamaran is a canoe with a sail.

They were used a lot for whale hunting.
