In the wilderness lies the preservation of the world.

Scholarship Weekend in Leipzig
We are not yet going into the deep wilderness, instead we are off to Taucha, near Leipzig. The garden of the Klauer family’s house is in full bloom and offers a good place to discuss technical possibilities and content of the projects we will be working on. A good team spirit is integral for the long trip with the other students, chaperones, film-makers and photographers. This binds us and motivates us for Canada. The highlight of the weekend was the teambuilding exercise, which was a lot of fun and put the finishing touches on the planning of the expedition. Only two weeks till take-off – we are well prepared!
