Cake and candles to celebrate 10 years of the EGU at the Union’s Executive Office
Today, 7 September 2012, marks the 10th anniversary of the European Geosciences Union, Europe’s premier geosciences union. A decade ago, in the Hotel Platzl in Munich, Germany, the European Geophysical Society (EGS) and the European Union of Geosciences (EUG) merged to form the EGU.
At the EGU Executive Office, also in Munich, we celebrated this momentous occasion with champagne and cake. Here’s a glimpse of our festivities.
