The Symposium on Education and Training (SYMET) is organized by the WMO Education, Training and Fellowships Division once every four years to assist the international community in meeting current meteorological and hydrological education and training challenges and those that are foreseen to arise over the next five to ten years. 

This year, the theme of SYMET will be “Education and Training in a Period of Rapid Change”, chosen to emphasize the challenges we all face in confronting the rapidly progressing technology, service delivery expectations, globalization of the meteorological enterprise, growth in urban environments, and impacts of climate change, among others.
