It is with great gratitude that Political Festival of Europe receives a 500,000 DKK sponsorship from the company Eurowind Energy.

Political Festival of Europe will be held for the first time from 25 to 28 August 2022 Mariager, Northern Denmark. Here, visitors from all over Europe will have the opportunity to share their visions for Europe’s future with influential politicians and decision-makers from across the continent. The aim of the Festival is to promote citizen conversation about the most pressing issues in Europe.

Sponsors of the Festival include, among others, Mariagerfjord Municipality and the North Jutland Region and now with the sponsorship of 500,000 DKK from Eurowind Energy, the Festival counts one more sponsor. Eurowind Energy, which has its headquarters in Hobro, is a leading developer and operator of wind and PV projects.

We are active in 13 European markets, consequently we greatly benefit from European cooperation and integration. Eurowind takes pride in playing an active part in the local communities where we develop, construct and operate wind and solar farms. With the Political Festival of Europe in Mariager, just down the road from our head office, it is natural for us to support a new large initiative in the community,
