Coastal symposium

From 9th-11th Nov 2022 we joined the 3rd "Küstensymposium" in Hamburg with the major topic "Changing coasts". We presented MGF-Nordsee with its recent results in a pitch presentation. In addition to interesting talks and exciting discussion, the artist Jessica Frische beautifully summarized the different focal topics in a grafical abstract. We really love the little picture summary of our project.
