Global Wind Day 2011

Global Wind Day is an event designed to raise worldwide awareness of wind energy. The day is celebrated each year on June 15, with thousands of public events in the US and countries around the world. It is a day for discovering wind, its power and the possibilities it holds to change our world. It is also a day for discovery of the work that has already begun by pioneers around the world.

In more than 75 countries around the world, wind farms are in operation, generating energy from a clean and renewable source. Global Wind Day is the day when you can visit wind farms, meet experts, attend events and find out everything you want to know about wind energy.

The European Wind Energy Association - EWEA - and the Global Wind Energy Council - GWEC - coordinate the Global Wind Day through a network of partners. The day started as a European one in 2007 and went Global in 2009.

Wind power is one of the leading energy solutions to climate change. Wind power is also a smart investment that pays off today and in the future. Wind energy provides good jobs with long-term potential. It's also a way to increase our energy independence from foreign countries and reduce our personal and collective carbon footprint.

Last year more than 220 events were organised in 30 countries all around the globe (see the 2010 report). For more information go to Global Wind Day.
