We’ve reached our final destination. This train, errr, guide ends here. But while this may be the end of this guide, it is the start of the reframing journey. Up to this point, we have covered why aviation needs to be reframed and why now is the time to do it; we have set a course to where this path could potentially take us; and we have explained how reframing can be practically applied by you through the networks you are embedded within.
You now have the tools to embark on your own journey, one where you will challenge the dominant narratives, build collaborative relationships with like-minded campaigners and, in some way, lay the foundations for a better mobility system and a new economy. So, here we are, changing. The reframing train is sat at the platform and the seats are filling up. People are conversing and laughing, the atmosphere full of possibilities.
As we pull out of the station and gather momentum, the shifting landscape outside of your window offers glimpses of different futures and alternative worlds, yet to be born. Your fellow travellers see these alternative futures too. Although they may have different end-points, you are all going in the same direction. The real work is yet to begin, but you have the tools to bring those new worlds – those enticing futures – into existence.
