#FEMSmicroBlog Writing Competition Winner
Gavin Douglas with his flash fiction story „Munity” is the winner of our #FEMSmicroBlog writing competition!A rogue researcher far out at sea has second thoughts about her mission at the last minute. The mission – upregulation of microbially-produced sulfur aerosols – can help counter the greenhouse effect. But is the science there yet? And what could be the unintended consequences?Read the short story: Mutiny#MicrobeArt2022 WinnersCongratulations to all our #MicrobeArt2022 winners and a special shout out to Grand Prize Winner, Sergio Martínez!The well-loved Microbe Art Competition made its come back to celebrate International Microorganism Day 2022.

News from our community
Expanding the international FEMS Ambassador programWe are pleased to announce an expansion of the FEMS Ambassador program, which was launched in 2019 to advance microbiology and support microbiologists outside Europe.An enthusiastic group of new Deputy Ambassadors based in seven non-European countries has been appointed this summer. They will work together with the current group of FEMS Ambassadors to encourage international collaborations and participation in FEMS activities.Meet the FEMS AmbassadorsBacteriaGame: learn clinical microbiology in a fun wayThe French Society for Microbiology has supported the development of a new card game, that helps people learn more on clinical microbiology.„BacteriaGame” has been created at the University Sorbonne Paris Nord, thanks to a collaboration between a medical bacteriologist (Mathilde Lescat) and the Ludomaker (Nicolas Pineros). The English language version of the game has now launched and is available to purchase. It makes a great gift for anybody interested in clinical microbiology!More info about BacteriaGame
Flora Fauna FungaFungi are a crucial part of the ecosystem and essential for countless applications and processes, yet research on them lags behind, and conservation efforts are less compared to other organisms.The Flora Fauna Funga initiative aims at changing this. This starts with a name – adding “funga” when referring to the conservation of plants (flora) and animals (fauna). You can read their statement and sign it below.“We are unthinkable without fungi, yet seldom do we think about them. It is an ignorance we can’t afford to sustain.”Read the statement
