Pierrette Thomet

Citation for the Michael Hunt Award

Through her leadership of the Festival of Weather, Arts and Music, WAM, and the WAM Special Interest Group, Pierrette Thomet Stott has found novel ways to communicate the beauty and fascination of meteorology, thereby increasing the engagement and understanding of weather and climate science by the general public. In doing so, Pierrette has enhanced many people’s appreciation of its effects on our lives and the challenges involved in forecasting it. She committed a huge amount of personal interest and energy in getting WAM off the ground and in making the first festival happen, and her infectious enthusiasm continues to be demonstrated in the annual WAM showcase events, which add depth and breadth to both programme and participants.
