However, over a decade ago, Dr. Frank was awakened to the reality of air travel’s impact on the environment. She revealed that it was “astonishing and humbling” to learn of the true relative carbon footprint of a single flight and expressed the sentiment that the pleasure and indulgence of travel paled in comparison to the pain experienced by the rest of the world as a consequence.
Her endeavors to be kinder to the environment included adopting a “profound diet” concerning air travel. This involved fulfilling professional and personal obligations by combining trips for maximal yield, booking economy class for greater fuel efficiency, and delivering keynote speeches remotely online - measures taken to drastically reduce her overall flying time.
NextGenU.org not only supports Dr. Frank in her efforts but follows in her footsteps as well. The team at NextGenU.org consists of individuals from various countries around the globe. Our online platform and workspace connect our employees daily, on personal and professional levels, with no need for air travel or even a daily commute!
