Wind energy off shore farms
Wind Energy is big in Denmark and Sweden and as we came in on the train every morning and evening to and from Malmo in Sweden to Copenhagen, we would see the off shore wind farms.
At the COP15 the Wind Energy side event had a novel offer which had thousands visit them almost every single day.They had a rack stacked with beautiful, free picture post cards which had been taken in the country they had set up their wind farms. There were cards from Scotland, India, Spain, Germany, China, Poland, you name it, they were all there. You could choose your card, address it and 'post' it in a box they had on the table. At the end of the day, they would post all the cards free of cost to the address written on them.
You can bet all of us turned up regularly to do that and told our colleagues who also came up and posted cards home to India, to friends and loved ones!
