Global Wind Day began in Europe in 2007


Global Wind Day, celebrated annually on June 15, began in 2007 as Wind Day, a day to promote wind energy in Europe.

The holiday was first organized in 2007 by the European Wind Energy Association, which is now known as WindEurope. The group co-hosted events in 18 European countries to promote the growth of wind energy and spread awareness of its benefits as a source of green energy.

WindEurope teamed up with the Global Wind Energy Council in 2009 and the holiday was rebranded Global Wind Day, with events held in dozens of countries around the world.

Other holidays and observances for June 15, 2022, include Fly-a-Kite Day, Justice for Janitors Day, Magna Carta Day, National Electricity Day, National Kiss a Wookiee Day, National Lobster Day, National Smile Power Day, Native American Citizenship Day, Nature Photography Day, World Elder Abuse Awareness Day and Worldwide Day of Giving.
