EU at the UN

The EU's commitment to effective multilateralism, with the UN at its core, is a central element of its external action. As a UN observer with enhanced status, the EU delegation coordinates with its 28 Member States to speak with one voice. The EU also works closely with the UN secretariat and its agencies, funds & programmes, partnering on a range of global issues and challenges.

This is the first time that the European Wind Day, a pan-European awareness campaign promoting wind energy, takes place across the Union, with the support of the Sustainable Energy Campaign and the European Commission. Its main aim is to celebrate the power, popularity and effectiveness of wind energy in the European Union.

This campaign, coordinated by the European Wind energy Association (EWEA), will include events taking place simultaneously in Brussels, Copenhagen, Madrid, Athens, Vienna and other major cities.

The Commission considers that wind energy should play a key role in the achievement of the binding target set by the European Council on 9th March, to achieve 20% of Europe’s energy consumption from renewable energy sources (RES). The Commission will present by the end of this year a framework directive for RES in which it will unveils the ways to achieve this objective.
