Teaser:

We're all talking about one thing: The weather! Some find their vocation in it, but for most it remains a more or less intensive hobby. Some are laymen work as honorary observers and support e.g. the German Weather Service. But also beyond that in Germany there are weather-interested humans who find themselves in groups and associations and discuss together as amateurs over the current weather situation or the development of the climate. In this event we would like to introduce you to the amateur meteorologists from the Berlin-Brandenburg section who report on their voluntary work. All interested parties are cordially invited. Admission is free.
