This society has several trained and professional 'babysitters' which also could speak foreign languages in its data base. In general it would be possible that the 'babysitter' can pick up the child/children at the hotel. The price per hour would be between 6 and 8 Euro.


The organizers cannot accept liability for personal accident, loss or damage to private property, which may be incurred as a result of the participation in the EGU General Assembly 2006. Participants are, therefore, advised to arrange appropriate insurance cover. This should extend not only to travel but also to cancellation costs.
