Out and about in Graz
The Botanical Garden is a wonderful place to visit on a chilly day. Relax in balmy warmth in the tropical domes surrounded by exotic plants and bursts of colour. Flowers are already appearing outside and by spring the grounds will be carpeted by pretty flowers.

Book Corner

We have a member book recommendation that ties in nicely with the Botanical Garden.

Set in Philadelphia in the early 1800's, SIGNATURE OF ALL THINGS tells the story of Alma Whittaker. Alma is a curious young scientist interested in botany and she falls for a mysterious painter. Their mutual quest for knowledge takes the reader across the world from London to Peru to Tahiti and beyond.

Looking for a book to read?
We have a big library of books at the Seddwell Center available for our members to borrow.

Interested in joining a book club? Just let us know!

We also have a huge stack of wellbeing German magazines and woud like to start a discussion group where we read an article and then discuss it together in English. Please let us know if you would be interested in joining in!

Intergration Survey
To help improve life in Graz for foreigners

The ZSI (Zentrum für soziale Innovation GmbH) are currently conducting a survey on living together in Graz on behalf of the Integration Department of the City of Graz.

By means of the multilingual online survey on the topic "Living together of people of different origins in Graz" they hope to find out how different life in Graz can be and how it could be improved. Topics include neighborhoods, social relationships, work and education, and other areas that shape living together, with a focus on municipal areas of action. As a thank-you for participating, there are shopping vouchers worth 50 euros to be won. Participation is possible until the end of the February at the following
