Learn ‘Why we cannot make life’ by MAINZ Visiting Professor Bert Meijer in a public lecture (abstract attached). This lecture will be worthwhile for anyone interested in natural sciences – or philosophy - but even an expert may still be able to learn a lot. Bert Meijer is very successful with this public lecture in the Netherlands and will now, for the first time, present his view about the origin of life on earth in Mainz. Be part of this special premiere and meet Bert Meijer to discuss why the creation of life is much more difficult than science fiction suggests!

When: January 25, 6 pm

Where: C 03, Lecture Hall Chemistry, Duesbergweg, JGU Campus (location changed!!!)

No registration needed. Limited number of seats available! ...

Your attitudes and core values are the cornerstones of your success. Many people find animal-assisted personal development a very appreciative and rich experience. The dogs' honest and non-judgmental reaction helps us understand and question our thought patterns and behaviors. The emotional experiences of animal-assisted training and coaching help us achieve quick, effective and lasting learning outcomes and boost our development. Our “four-legged assistant coaches” teach us to communicate clearly, lead with confidence, be persuasive and act with resolve.
