“Future Weather, Future Challenges” was a one-day event encompassing three session on the challenges of future weather and climate change. There was a stimulating and engaging line-up of speakers, including two EMS Silver Medal recipients, exploring the ways that weather and climate can impact on Irish society.
The NVBM autumn symposium was held on 17 November 2017 at Wageningen University and was entirely dedicated to the 200th birthday of Buys Ballot. An impressive line-up of speakers discussed the current research and how Buys Ballot, should he be alive today, would have dealt with this.
In November the Catalan Meteorological Society (ACAM) organised the symposium "Eduard Fontserè" in Barcelona, aiming at dissemination of knowledge on Mediterranean meteorology and climatology, and attended by academics, amateurs and researchers.
The SGM and the C2SM organised a workshop on weather and climate communication at ETH Zurich. The participants learned about the best ways to present their research topics to the general public
