Cloud Appreciation Society Membership

If you, like us, believe that clouds are the most evocative and dynamic of Nature's displays, you will be welcomed into the Cloud Appreciation Society with open arms. Otherwise, you've come to the wrong place.

Below, you'll see what you get as a subscribing member, as well as how to buy membership as a gift for someone else. And if you want to know what the Society stands for, take a look at the Manifesto of the Cloud Appreciation Society.

You Get a Member Pack

We send a badge, a personalised certificate, and a Cloud Selector identification wheel

Society membership isn't just a digital thing. Every member receives a pack in the post. Your membership certificate says that the member will "henceforth seek to persuade all who'll listen of the wonder and beauty of clouds". The pack also contains one of our 'Cloud Selector' identification wheels.

Turn the dial to spot a cloud. No WiFi or battery needed.

We send the Member Pack with free worldwide shipping.

You get a Cloud-A-Day

It's an email service for our subscribing members

We've always argued that a moment each day with your head in the clouds has a profound effect on your wellbeing. That's why we send our subscribing members a cloud each day. It arrives as a short daily email. Sometimes it's a photograph of an amazing formation by one of our members, sometimes, a super-short piece of cloud science. We might send an inspiring sky quotation or a detail from a classic piece of cloud art. Each day it's different and takes no longer than 30 seconds to read. Our Cloud-a-Day email contains no distracting links to 'find out more', and it is never, ever about selling stuff.

Your membership will help us inspire young cloudspotters

5% of our membership fees are going to helping teachers around the world encourage a greater appreciation and understanding of clouds in young people. Our Cloud Appreciation Pack consists of free downloadable lesson plans, activities and resources and we send out an accompanying physical pack to any school or homeschool teacher free of charge. This Survival Kit for the Imagination is aimed at encouraging young people to become more aware of the beauty of the sky, to learn about how clouds work and to find calm and emotional resilience by engaging with this ever-present part of nature. In short, it is to encourage them to keep looking up.
