Has the flight-shaming movement or worries about sustainability impacted the way you travel? Do you have any tips for travelling more sustainably? Let us know.

Amid a backdrop of climate change and the risking flight-shaming movement, more and more people are incorporating sustainability concerns into their travel plans. 

Statistics from the German Airports Association (Flughafenverband) show a 12 percent drop in German domestic flights in 2019. 

Meanwhile, a Tagesschau poll from 2019 showed that almost one in four (23 percent) of Germans wanted to fly less than they currently do. 

These concerns are likely to be particularly pressing for readers of The Local Germany, many of whom come from abroad and want to visit friends and family far away. 

We’re reaching out to find out if environmental concerns have impacted the way you travel. If so, how much? And whether through flying less – or even changing the way you pack your bags – have you found a way to travel more sustainably?

This callout is for a commercial editorial article in partnership with bunq, a Dutch bank which seeks to incorporate environmental sustainability into banking. 

Your answers will be published in The Local in a sponsored content piece looking at how to make travelling more sustainable.
