A pioneer and veteran within wind power
Tvindkraft was built by volunteers during 1975 – 1978. At the time it was the world’s biggest modern wind turbine. Thus, the windmill team carried out a huge achievement when they blazed new trails in the history of sustainable energy production.
With its size and modern technology Tvindkraft showed the way for wind energy and became world famous. Today, Denmark produces more than 40% of its electricity needs via wind power. Tvindkraft is now running well into its 40th year to the great pleasure of many people – and the planet.
When and where
You can join anytime for a period of two weeks and up to several months, depending on the skills you have, and the work needed to be done at Tvindkraft.
Host of the programme
You will work together with the people who are maintaining and running Tvindkraft, and agree with them about what tasks you would undertake.
How can I get involved?
It is an honour for us who today are looking after the windmill to take good care of it. And more hands are needed to run the windmill, take care of guests, paint, lubricate bearings and tighten bolts, keep track of the production, and to participate in maintenance and technical development. For example, we are developing a new control system. You are welcome to join,
and do what is most relevant for you.
Apart from the windmill, we have solar heating, solar voltaic installations, a stand-alone system and an electrical car.
You will get plenty of opportunity to get hands-on experience with it all.
What’s in it for me?
Through the work you will meet many people from all over the world, from the schools in Tvind, and from various other groups and individuals who work with energy and environment.
There is the possibility for you to join other actions of climate benefit, as well as common activities and events in Tvind – meals, sports, cultural evenings etc.
We are happy to provide a description of work done / project descriptions for long term volunteers who need a reference.

Course: The Cuban Literacy Campaign
The Cuban Literacy Campaign and the participation of women in the campaign significantly impacted the Cuban patriarchal culture at a crucial moment. In other words, though a male-led revolution did not give women the space to organise against patriarchy, rather by actively participating in the revolution, women helped change the nature of Cuban patriarchy today.
Teaching Practice Reflection
When two or more people share an experience, or work on a task together, something emerges that is not part of them and their mutual interrelationships. It is something external to them. (M Husen 2022).
Gamification and Adult Education
In order for gamification in adult’s education to work, educators should resort to strategies such as promoting fun and engaging activities whilst creating a safe and supportive learning environment.
What is a common meeting? How is it structured? What happened at this meeting? Who attends a common meeting? What things are dicussed? These questions set up the framework to one of these meetings.
