ACCIONA donates wind turbine blade to Madrid to celebrate COP25 climate summit
José Luis Martínez-Almeida, mayor of Madrid, unveiled a wind blade turbine, donated by ACCIONA, in central Madrid to commemorate the beginning of the COP25 Climate Summit, being held in the Spanish capital. The unit will be on exhibit throughout the duration of the summit. Located on Madrid’s central Paseo de la Castellana avenue, it symbolizes the revival of the city’s commitment to the fight against the ongoing climate emergency.
During the unveiling, a group of artists with disabilities, coordinated by Spain’s Fundación Once, decorated the blade with messages of encouragement against global warming. At the same time, the general public was also invited to ink their messages in favor of a better planet. At the event, Martínez-Almeida was the first to leave his commemorative “graffiti” on the blade, signing: “COP25. Madrid stands for a climate agreement”.
