This year, the theme is:

"Weather and climate: engaging youth."

Each year, on 23 March, the World Meteorological Organization, its 189 Members and the worldwide meteorological community celebrate World Meteorological Day around a chosen theme. This day commemorates the entry into force, on that date in 1950, of the WMO Convention creating the Organization. Subsequently, in 1951, WMO was designated a specialized agency of the United Nations System.

This video-clip was presented on the occasion of the World Meteorological Day 2011 (23 March) to launch the Puppet Planet Project. It is a UN initiative launched by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), and the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD),  to promote climate literacy and the creative economy. The goal is to encourage action to address climate challenges, while promoting cultural diversity, sustainable development and the creative industries in developing countries.
