Celebrate Global Wind Day

June 15, 2014

Global Wind Day is a worldwide event that occurs annually on June 15th. It is a day for discovering wind energy, 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 80 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 Global Wind Day through a network of partners such as CanWEA. On June 15th, thousands of public events are organized all over the world and right here in Canada.

Join us on June 15th to celebrate the power of wind energy!
