Very interesting events have been added in the last days, and they will take place in different countries. Some examples are listed and introduced below; three of them in Europe and one in South Africa.
1) To understand the fish, you have to be the fish : video competition. During this event participants will have to create a short film (2-5 min) on fish migration from a freshwater fish’s perpective. This will give the opportunity to see the world from a fish point of view, in order to understand better how they live and what they need for their lives to go on. The candidates will have to make a video and send it to the organizers, where impartial jury will review and judge all submissions. Winners of each categories will be announced during the WFMD Reverse Duzi event held on 21st of April in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa. AWESOME PRIZES TO WIN !
2) Daytrip Afsluitdijk and Harlingen. The Afsluitdijk is an icon of Dutch water management, but it needs to be refurbished to become future proof: a perfect example of navigating change.

All this can be possible thanks to the University of Groningen.
