A new attraction awaits visitors in the Schlossgarten – an approximately one-km “Tree Discovery Trail” which highlights the tree ecosystem in the park and the cycle of life. In commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the University of Music, we have included a feature page on the faculty’s musical diversity and illustrious history. In the June issue of the University newspaper wissen|leben, sustainability researchers at the WWU present various approaches to reducing the ubiquity of plastic. You will also find a linguistically enlightening interview by the German studies scholar Dr Nils Bahlo on the characteristics of youth slang. Finally, we wrap up our dossier on the promotion of WWU junior researchers with three guest contributors who explain how the Universities of Vienna, Basel and Zurich are supporting talented academics.
