It is very important to us, to keep the contact to guides globally, to communicate and inform. To motivate each other is a further chance to overcome these times. The access and the “rewatch” are for free again. Although, we don’t calculate our working time input, there are costs for equipment and softwares (like zoom). Therefore we would really appreciate a donation, so we can continue organising events like that one again for you!
