“The Vienna Ball of Sciences sets a signal. A signal that is necessary more than ever. At the Sci Ball we dance for open minds and tolerance. We also dance against those who have long been trying to propagate their terrible ideas in the Vienna Hofburg. Let’s show everyone that there is another way! Science and teaching are free. It’s a good thing, that there’s the Sci Ball. ”
Johanna Zechmeister is the chairperson of the Austrian Student Union, nominated by the independent student list (FLÖ). She studies medicine and law.
