June marked an important chapter in the EGU history. The Union has launched a new vision and strategy for the next five years and announced a move of the EGU Executive Office to new premises. We have also announced two job vacancies at the office, for a Head of Media, Communications & Outreach and for a Chief Strategy & Finance Officer. The deadline for applications is 14 July.

We have also opened a call for financial support to organise EGU training schools and conferences this month. Finally, we opened the EGU General Assembly 2020 call for sessions. You can submit your sessions ideas by 15 August (Union Symposia and Great Debates) or 5 September (other session types).
