Holiday Greetings from HeiGIT and GIScience Heidelberg

While 2021 hasn’t been an easy year, we still managed to accomplish a lot! Thank you for your continued support, your contributions, and your interest in our work. The team at HeiGIT and GIScience Heidelberg wishes you and your friends and family a Merry Christmas and restful holidays!

Despite the circumstances, we hope that you get the chance to spend some time with your loved ones and that you start the new year with renewed energy. Stay happy and healthy!

Amid all the changes one thing has remained the same: As in previous years, the team at HeiGIT has decided to donate money to those who are less well off, instead of sending gifts to our friends and partners. The Klaus Tschira Foundation has again provided us with funds for this purpose.

This year, HeiGIT has decided to donate this money to the women’s refuge Frauen helfen Frauen e.V. Heidelberg. Since the start of the pandemic cases of domestic violence have unfortunately increased. Frauen helfen Frauen e.V. Heidelberg will use this donation to help women and children in need, to prevent violence and abuse against women, and to help maintain social distancing guidelines within their facilities.
