His work in the field, working with Greenpeace and the regional RAA centre for democratic culture against right-wing extremism and right-wing populism in Vorpommern-Greifswal especisally made for an engaging talk that lend itself well for further discussion both inside the auditorium and outside of it. 

Diving into the questions and answer sessions straight away!

Discussions continue until late at night.

Dr. Gudrun Reijnierse gives a talk on the linguistic aspects of framing, covering the basic forms of framing, as well as focusing on metaphors and how they shape the way we perceive the world.

Dr. Amanda Machin gives a talk on the relevance of framing in the climate change debate.

Music never fails to lighten up the mood - or catch a crowd's attention for that matter.

The student paper presentations were truly the hard of our conference. The topics were as diverse as the participants themselves, ranging from the biases of internet algorithms to the awareness of different frames in the work of occupational therapist with young people from dissadvantaged communities.
