BOKU = Universität für Bodenkultur Wien = University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna

On September 19th, we made a trip to BOKU for a series of lectures presented by one of our international collaborators, Dr. Jan Sendzimir. We were joined by a couple students from Burkina Faso and another professor from the university. Jan gave us three presentations: 1) Adapting to Global Change: Integrating Science and Policy in River Basins, 2) Participatory Processes to View Consequences of Assumptions about Social-Ecological Systems, and 3) Ignoring Climate Science: Some 'soft' explanations.

IIASA = International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis in Laxenburg, Vienna

This morning, September 26th, we traveled a short way outside Vienna to Laxenburg for a meeting with another international collaborator, Dr. Piotr Magnuszewski. We discussed our plans for Poland, where we will get a chance to observe other people playing the role playing game as part of an exploratory study. We will be sure to provide more details following our experiences in Poland next month.
