Inspiring stories from people working in clean energy
To help save the world, you don’t have to be a super hero. Simply by deciding to do certain jobs, we can all help look after our planet, our environment and our future generations. This is a book about 21 people who are working in clean energy; what they all have in common is that they are passionate about their job, and work on tackling the climate crisis. Meet Vanessa who ensures our ‘Teams’ calls are as green as possible, Swarna who studies the wind to put her turbines in the best locations; Nicolas who flies drones to check for cracks in the blades; and Jos who builds playgrounds from old wind turbines. There are people from all continents who will tell you about their clean energy jobs, what subjects they studied and the skills they needed to be able to do what they do now.
Let the wind blow
Our fully-illustrated children’s book on wind energy, released in 2019 and now available in 30 languages!

Wind energy teaching resources
WindEurope ran a pilot project for teaching wind energy to 12 years old students at the Singelijn Primary School in Brussels. The programme was co-created by one of the school’s teachers, two university professors and WindEurope.
