Aviation Sustainability Symposium

"How can aviation grow green?”

Symposium

You are cordially invited to the Aviation Sustainability Symposium organized by the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences. The theme of this symposium is “the challenge of making the continuously growing aviation sector sustainable”.

In the morning there will be vision speeches by experts from the industry about growth, sustainability in connection to the purpose of the sector and the involved organizations. These speeches will be given by representatives of various backgrounds including an airline, emission trading specialist, electric aircraft manufacturer and policy expert. In between these speeches students will be pitching their research projects in the areas of aviation sustainability.

After the lunch break there will be learnshops facilitated by Soul.com involving all participants. The objectives of the learnshops are:

  1. To make concrete the tension between growth of the sector and sustainability
  2. To formulate the role of technology, policy and the sector in making aviation grow sustainably
  3. To define which individual contribution we can make in our professional environment

This will be followed up by a plenary recap to share our learnings and new insights. We will also collect input for the educational and research agenda of the Aviation Academy.

The day will close in a social setting with plenty of opportunity to network.

What role can you play in the sustainable growth of aviation? Sign up and join the conversation!
