The Environment & Society Portal created by the Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society (RCC), a joint initiative of the LMU Munich (University of Munich) and the Deutsches Museum. The project is made possible thanks to the generous support of the German Federal Ministry for Education and Research. For their collaboration and advice on many aspects of the project, we owe special thanks to the Bavarian State Library and our international partners.
