This spring Birdlife Europe will be visible in the TV documentary Wings Over Sweden produced by Planetaire, a company committed to improving the way that sustainability is presented by using compelling stories.
The heroes of the new documentary are competitive glider pilots. Their planes are perfect symbols of sustainability, drawing their speed exclusively from sun and wind and the BirdLife Europe logo will be visible on the wings of the gliders.
The series starts with Wings Over Sweden, showing off some of the country’s environmental success stories. It’s about the beauty of the country as seen through the eyes of the pilot and a celebrity passenger. The format will be replicated in a number of countries.
Wind power is one of the most advanced and affordable renewable energy technologies available. BirdLife Europe supports its deployment on- and offshore in order to cut greenhouse gas emissions. If well-sited and managed, wind power does not pose unacceptable risk to wild life. We are excited about engaging with the film Wings Over Sweden – as it shows how wind can be used in an innovative way to further develop technology and to fulfill the dreams and aspirations of humans in close collaboration with nature.
