As leaders are called to attend the United Nations' September 2019 Climate Summit, they will again be challenged to address the issues our actions place on climate change, air quality and biodiversity, putting the impact of aviation under scrutiny.

In May 2019 the European Aviation Environmental Report stated that while aviation had produced economic benefits, stimulated innovation and improved connectivity, the current trends are not compatible with protecting the environment, climate and poeple's health.

The Aerospace and Aviation industry has set aggressive targets for improvement and invested billions of pounds in new technologies to meet noise and emission goals. These improvements are often offset by the growth in the sector. The UK Government consultation on Aviation 2050 identifies the importance of developing a partnership for sustainable growth which meets rising passenger demand, balanced with action to reduce environmental and community impacts.

Cranfield University has at the heart of its mission a strong aviation, aerospace and environmental research capability. We offer unique facilities through Cranfield's global research airport and the Cranfield Living Lab campus, making us uniquely placed to hold the Aviation and the Environment Conference.

This conference will cover:

key current research activities in the global aviation and aerospace sector and the environmental science agenda,
workshop discussions to explore challenges and identify shared actions for change,
aerospace vehicle design and technology,
sustainable aviation fuels,
alternative propulsion concepts including aircraft electrification, air traffic management , airport management.
