Does that travel bug of yours have you flying the friendly skies in search of new horizons? Well not only does that bug keep us itching for new adventures, but many disturbing studies also show that our travel bugs are eating away at our “good” ozone – that is: the ozone in the stratosphere, which shields us from harmful UV rays.

While our air travel strips away that lower layer, we are actually CREATING harmful ozone in the upper troposphere, generating climate-changing greenhouse gases. But what are we to do?

NAFSA  is the premier organization for all facets of international education, from study abroad to immigration, from specific interest groups to institutional interest groups.

I have been to several NAFSA  conferences (and helped at many!) and they are just brimming with international goodwill and excitement.
