WDR at the Institute of Plant Genetics


A team from the children's and youth television program "Neuneinhalb" produced an episode with CEPLAS Alumna Agatha Walla about water scarcity.

In the new episode, the complex background and solution methods are presented in a way that is accessible to everyone. Agatha Walla (HHU) explains how we make plants more resistant to drought with the help of plant research and that drought resistant plants are a solution to reduced water supply. The children's program aims to raise awareness of the issue of water scarcity and give children and young people the opportunity to actively engage with solutions.
