Over the weekend of 20 and 21 November 2010 the new MEG 6 generation travelled with their immediate predecessors, the MEG 5 generation, to the Uni-Haus on Schauinsland Mountain in the Black Forest. The purpose of the weekend was to give the two current MEG generations a chance to get to know each other and share experiences. During the weekend the MEG 5s also gave presentions about their recently completed internships, which proved invaluable for the new MEGs who are presently faced with the task of applying for their own internships.

During the weekend from the 15th to the 17th of April, Freiburg University hosted the third Freiburg Forum on Environmental Governance. The 2010 edition entitled “The Role of New Media in Environmental Governance” was organized entirely by the students of the MEG 4 generation, as part of their study programme (Student Organized Event). A new addition to the event was to combine the Forum with a MEG-alumni meeting made possible thanks to DAAD funding. 42 MEG alumni traveled to Freiburg to meet their former colleagues but also to share their life and work experiences with current students.
