Global Wind Energy Day picnic at Parliament – You’re invited!

BannerThere has been a tsunami of support for wind energy and renewables since the review of the Renewable Energy Target commenced.

Unlike some politicians (such as Treasurer Joe Hockey), we’re proud of Australia’s wind energy sector and the contribution it makes to creating jobs and investment, delivering drought-proof income for regional towns, and tackling global warming.

This is why we’re celebrating Global Wind Day 2014.

Friends of the Earth are joining with the Australian Wind Alliance and the Coalition for Community Energy to host a fun, family-friendly picnic at Parliament House on Sunday June 15.

RSVP to join us on Global Wind Day.

The family picnic will feature speakers and fun activities for the kids. A coffee cart will offer hot soup, pumpkin pies, tea and coffee to keep warm. You can bring your own picnic basket and join in on the family fun!

Come along and be part of the national body of support for the renewable energy target.

“This picnic gives people an opportunity to get together and talk about how wind can contribute to Australia’s energy future,” says Andrew Bray of the Australian Wind Alliance.

“It is clear from the Renewable Energy Target review submissions that cuts to the target are economically futile and not popular with the public.”
