In August, "Have a break"

Published on 1 August 2022

August is a bit less busy month for IMS. It is an opportunity for the team to take a step back from the first few months and to work on the activities in September. Among other highlights are the European Mobility Week and the next edition of the Luxembourg Sustainability Forum.

A few tips from the team for a serene start to the holidays: 

  • Lighten your schedule the week before your departure,
  • Complete urgent and important tasks,
  • Warn your professional entourage of your departure,
  • Delegate tasks that cannot wait until your return,
  • Brief the people to whom you delegate,
  • Delete any work-related applications you may have on your phone,
  • Set aside time on your return to get back into the swing of things and get through the essentials,
  • Schedule a check-in with the people you have delegated to thank them and update you, 
  • Write your out-of-office message and tidy up your desk,
  • Disconnect, and above all, enjoy!

Night Travelers: the Sleeping Cars are Back!
Why are we witnessing a resurgence of interest in night trains? The environmentally friendly nature of trains might provide the answer, with the luxurious bonus of taking our time.

Kitamaya, and the tree will be saved
Although wood is an ecological material of choice, its production is rarely sustainable. However, in the Land of the Rising Sun, an ancestral practice born in the Kitayama Mountains lives on. A century-old forestry technique that takes the approach of never cutting down a tree entirely.
