Happy Carnival from the EGU Executive Office in Munich!

With everyone at the office busy with General Assembly preparations and other activities, a typical Bavarian breakfast on Carnival day is a most welcome break. Germany loves Carnival and Munich, while lagging behind Cologne, Düsseldorf, and Mainz in Fasching parties, is no exception. At the office, we decided to celebrate the date with a Weißwurst Frühstückaccompanied by… Bavarian beer, of course! Good thing we, as other German workers, have the afternoon free to watch the Carnival parades.

Bárbara Ferreira is the Media and Communications Manager of the European Geosciences Union. She is responsible for the Union's communication activities, from coordinating the EGU newsletter to members and overseeing the blogging and social media activities of the organisation, to publishing press releases for journalists and organising press conferences. She has a PhD in astrophysics from the University of Cambridge.
