On 15 June 2009, five continents will be united by events, conferences, parties and contests celebrating and promoting wind energy as a clean, infinite, no-fuel energy source.
To initiate the six month run-up to the event, a wind energy themed photo contest and an all-new website are being launched. The idea of the Global Wind Day is based on the success of the European Wind Day, organised by the European Wind Energy Association (EWEA) over the past couple of years. This year, EWEA is joining forces with the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) to coordinate the Global Wind Day. The new website, www.globalwinddday.org , provides information about the campaign and the network of wind energy associations, industry actors and stakeholders that will be organising public events on 15 June.
