FroG at KlimaWald Bayreuth
Three students of Global Change Ecology had organized a phenomenal event: “Klimawald (Climate Forest) Bayreuth aiming to build a climate-resilient forest in Bayreuth that can adapt to the future climate under a 2°C warming while mitigating climate change by reducing our carbon emissions”. In this 3-day project, the students have cooperated with many organizations in Bayreuth, and got people from a very diverse background joining to plant the 4500 trees. As Friends of Global Change Ecology, we supported the students with logistical and organizational tasks along with organizing a donation of refreshments from local bakery/breweries! In the future, FroG will continue to be a sustaining partner of this event.
Congratulations to the students for organizing such a great event that is very much in line with the goals of our association!

Master's Thesis Experience Night
The first Friends of Global Change Ecology e.V. event took place yesterday at the University of Bayreuth. The evening dedicated to the presentation of master's thesis topics attracted some 30 students from GCE 2015 to GCE 2018, eager to hear about their fellow students work. The presenters had 5 minutes to pitch their topic, methods, results, discussion and to share some wisdom from their process. Afterwards, a 2 minute discussion round gave the chance to the audience to ask some questions. The topics covered ranged from plant root composition to power structures of farmers in Kenya to marine turbulence schemes and migratory bird retreats. The evening was rounded off in an informal setting over some drinks and food in downtown Bayreuth.
