The active and interactive Global Wind Day

19.05.2009

The Global Wind Day is now under a month away! Over the weekend of 15 June, events will take place all over the world celebrating the power of the wind. By why not start getting in the spirit by voting for your favourite windy image in the Wind Day Photo Contest?

Hundreds of keen amateur photographers have submitted a snapshot that they feel captures a new and original element of the wind and wind energy, and one winner will be chosen by public vote. The other will be chosen by a panel of experts from EWEA, Samsung and National Geographic. The two winners will get a digital professional Samsung camera and they and other shortlisted photos will be exhibited during the Global Wind Day along with the events organised by the many wind energy stakeholders around the world. So vote now.

There are many hundreds of events organised for the Global Wind Day. They include wind farms guided tours, conferences, exhibitions in capital cities, workshops, information days, openings of new wind farms, regattas, marathons, theatrical shows and much more.
