EAS Advisory Committee on Sustainability

Mission statement

Established in autumn 2020, in accordance with the EAS commitment to a sustainable development of European astronomy, the EAS Sustainability Advisory Committee aims to investigate, communicate, and make recommendations to Council on sustainability matters related to astronomy and astrophysics. Relevant issues include, among others, the organisation of international meetings, the energy consumption of observatories and supercomputer facilities, and sustainability and climate issues as part of astronomy communication.

We invite you to join us on our collective mission to reduce the carbon footprint of the average European astronomer and to pave the way for a resilient and sustainable future of European astronomical research. If you would like to contribute to these efforts or get in touch with the Sustainability Advisory Committee to find out more, please contact sustainability-eas @ unige.ch.
