This month saw the publication of the EGU 2017 General Assembly programme, which includes about 1000 sessions and over 17,500 abstracts. The conference is less than a month away, and promises to be the largest and most exciting to date. To attend, don’t forget to register online, or on-site during the week of the meeting (23–28 April).

In other news, this month the EGU has announced that it is supporting March for Science. This global movement will culminate with a march on Earth Day, April 22, 2017, in Washington DC, as well as in many cities around the world, including Vienna. EGU President Hans Thybo said: “While the March for Science idea started in the US, its mission and objectives are global and nonpartisan. A movement that champions science, supports freedom to conduct responsible scientific research, and calls for more evidence-based policy, is one that aligns with EGU’s own objectives.”
