On Friday, June 14, 2013, Sierra Club Ohio and Moms Clean Air Force organizers, volunteers and Columbus area residents celebrated Global Wind Day at the Columbus Commons. As part of the celebration, participants made pinwheels and learned about the wind energy industry in Ohio as part of the Commons for Kids activities.
Global Wind Day is a worldwide event that occurs annually on June 15. It is a day for learning about wind, its power and the possibilities it holds to change our planet. 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.
