As mentioned in our previous post
Global Wind Day Photo Contest, we want to remind everyone that the date is fast approaching.
What is Global Wind Day?
Global Wind Day is a worldwide event that occurs annually on 15 June. 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.-GlobalWindDay.org
We hope you got your photo contest entries in on time.
Check out the Events Map where you can search for local and all other worldwide Global Wind Day events.
The nearest ones to our local area are the Greenpeace-related Energy Week Boston, MA and in Ocean City, NJ where the Sierra Club have organized a kite flying event open to all, to show the power of wind.
It’s no coincidence that these places are where offshore wind projects Cape Wind and the planned NJ offshore projects (Garden State, Fisherman’s Energy, Blue Water -plus, some are just proposals) are close to becoming a reality, and it’s on people’s minds.
Maybe next time, we’ll be holding an event ourselves! What kind of fun wind-related event would you like to be a part of? Let us know!
