European Wind Day – 15 June 2007
The first ever pan-European awareness campaign promoting wind energy will be focused on a European Wind Day to take place on 15 June. The aim is to celebrate the power, popularity and effectiveness of wind energy right across Europe.
Coordinated by EWEA, the thinking behind the event is that at a time of energy and climate crisis, it is vital to explain to European citizens and decision-makers that an energy shift is needed. The wind sector will demonstrate that wind power has strong public support as an unlimited, clean source of energy that is stable, secure and independent from outside supply.
European Wind Day will be celebrated across the continent, with events taking place simultaneously in Brussels, Paris, Copenhagen, Madrid, Berlin, Budapest, Stockholm, London and other major cities. National associations, manufacturers and wind developers will all organise ‘wind events’ in their towns and cities and at wind farms themselves.
The EU Wind Day is a Europe-wide event that will:
- Promote the power of wind across Europe as a popular and effective energy source
- Explain why wind energy is a key solution to the energy and climate crisis
- Encourage European citizens to sign up for green electricity
EWEA will shortly be launching a European Wind Day web site containing practical information about the events taking place, locations and participants in the campaign.
