Summary/Abstract: Nature grows everywhere we look, causing both gradual and explosive change, rippling through what lives and making it always new. The Gatherings in Biosemiotics become instantiated by the people who meet and the places they meet at, and the fateful 20th year of conferences comes to us in the middle of Europe, at a crossroads between places, cultures and ways of knowing, and at quite an important moment for society and its interaction as a whole with the COVID-19 pandemic. Biosemiotics, as remarkable a discipline as it is, can only subsist through our common efforts in seeking the meaningfulness of meaning itself for biological systems, and the Gatherings have been nothing short of essential in keeping the discussion alive – and evolving, despite the weirdly oppressing circumstances brought about by the virus affecting the whole world.
