From the 28. – 29.10.2023 we had out annual division retreat. This time we met in the picturesque village of Weissenkirchen in the midst of the UNESCO World Heritage Region of Wachau. Surrounded by vinyards, hills and close to the Danube we had inspiring discussions surrounding biodiversity change, sustainable development and science in general. Ideas for a working group publication materialized and evolved, supported by nice food and a good glas of wine (or maybe two).
