Renewable energies are indispensable for a climate-friendly and sustainable economy. Also, due to their decentralized nature, they distribute economic opportunities equally across all countries – since everyone has access to wind, sun, etc.
To celebrate this great transformation, the first Saturday after the summer solstice was proclaimed as WorldREnewDay by Global100RE and Ruslana in 2019 for the first time. On this day, the dawn of the solar age is to be celebrated and experienced in its social and cultural dimensions.
In view of the war in Ukraine and its direct connection to the fossil and nuclear energy industry, the focus in 2022, on 25 June, will be on the peace-making potential of renewable energies in the world. This also reflects the important role of Ruslana Lyzhichko, Ukrainian ESC winner, Maidan activist and ambassador for 100% renewable energy.
The celebration is to take place as a hybrid event in Bonn, broadcasted internationally. Speeches on various aspects are to be presented on a stage and a cultural program with music is also to be presented. The initiative from the Ahr Valley to the SolAHRtal should also be presented as a concrete German project and as a direct response to the devastating consequences of climate change.
