Flying has a greater impact on the climate than any other form of travel. When kerosene is burned, pollutants are produced, including carbon dioxide (CO2). This contributes significantly to global warming.
A train or bus trip is therefore the best option for distances of less than 800-1000 km: Compared to a flight, you consume 40-70 percent less energy on the train. You burden the climate by up to 85 percent less and experience the changing landscapes more intensely. The train is two to three times as efficient as the plane, especially for short journeys. There are helpful tools on the Internet that you can use to calculate the emissions of your trip.
Do you want to or cannot do without your flight? Then you should definitely offset the CO2 emissions of your flight with a surcharge on your flight ticket. With this levy you are specifically supporting a climate protection project with which the greenhouse gases of your flight can be saved again. Read more about this at myclimate or at atmosfair.
Take time for small excursions into strange worlds, even in everyday life. It doesn't take much for that: a good book, a rousing film, a few musical sounds or a suitable event. Time out is a short-term alternative program to what demands us over a longer period of time. Those who indulge themselves regularly in time out do not have to compensate for what they missed out on in everyday life.
Time out in everyday life
Extract from Amnesty International's annual report
Boko Haram armed group continued attacks in 2019, killing hundreds because security forces failed to take the necessary measures to protect civilians. The Nigerian armed forces, police and domestic intelligence services continued to torture and otherwise ill-treat detainees. In some parts of Nigeria, it was not possible in 2019 to break the spiral of partly ethnically motivated violence. The rights to freedom of expression, assembly and association were endangered as the scope for social engagement was increasingly restricted. The government disregarded several court decisions.
