Aviation is a force for economic and social development, encourages investment, stimulates infrastructure expansion that benefits various industries and has significant domestic and international economic linkages. These benefits, however, are provided at a high environmental cost. Locally, communities around airports often suffer from noise and air pollution. Around the globe, the carbon intensity of the aviation sector has posed significant challenges with respect to climate change adaptation and mitigation.
This taster lecture discusses:
- The environmental performance of the aviation industry
- The public reaction to aviation’s impact on the environment
- How regulators and various stakeholders have reacted to the pressure to control and mitigate negative externalities
- The complexity of environmental KPIs

Dr Marina Efthymiou is Assistant professor in Aviation Management and the course director of MSc Management (Aviation Leadership) at Dublin City University.

About this Event
We are bringing together aviation experts to discuss wellbeing solutions around the human factors and safety challenges.
* * * * * * * * * * * * *
This year, the European Aviation Wellbeing Conference is organised by the European Aviation Wellbeing Committee, a non-profit organisation established to reduce the gap and act as a mediator between regulators, organisations and aviation professionals to enhance safety and resilience.
The conference brings together a diverse range of aviation leaders sharing the same vision towards integrating resilience, and improving both mental and physical performance within the aviation industry.
"We hold a strong belief that only from personal experience in the industry and a deep understanding of our specific environment, we can bring solutions that are practical and sustainable and that matches the daily challenges of our industry. Only through collective cooperation we can influence sustainable change" - Valentina Fitzpatrick, EAWC Founder.
The EAWC conference is the only platform that focuses on the human challenges, and uses its own sources and talent within the industry to deliver a message of transformation and growth into a new holistic culture in aviation.
Last year it was highlighted the well-known challenges in our industry. This year, the discussion is moving forward taking positive action focusing on both practical and theoretical solutions that come from the core of our industry.
