Which weather rules do you know? Do you yourself make observations in nature from which you can make predictions for the weather? What do you use this knowledge for? Do you think it is still relevant and applicable today?
If you would like to share your knowledge and be part of an exchange meeting, join our call for weather rules!
Based on the submissions, we will organize an exchange meeting to bring together people who have an interest in sharing the knowledge that still exists about observing and interpreting the weather, and to exchange ideas about the relevance and application of this knowledge today - regionally, nationally, and internationally. The meeting is scheduled to take place in Berlin (and online) at the end of the year as part of a series of projects that Spore Initiative is facilitating in collaboration with partners in Yucatán and Gujarat, addressing traditional methods of weather observation, and their relevance for working with and on the land.
