The idea for the sun dance came from Raquel, our Volunteer Co-ordinator. Raquel (pictured below) is a choreographer, who is passionate about using art to raise awareness about renewables.
"I had the idea to do the sun dance in Millennium Square because I really wanted a chance for people to get together to show their support for solar in a way that is upbeat and something that we can share with others.... I feel that a lot of the time when we talk about climate change it's very worthy so this was a bit more of a celebration of that renewable source that we can tap into when we come together."
The mass sun dance was designed to raise awareness about our ambitious solar projects include developing a solar farm in Lawrence Weston, financing an existing solar farm in Somerset and installing solar panels on around 20 community buildings across Bristol, including Wick Sports Centre. Matt from the sports centre came along to get involved. He told us, "I'm keen to support any projects that use renewable energy and at the football club we support the project."

The sun dance was filmed by the fantastic Red Dog Productions.
