World EV Day, which is brought to you by Green.TV Media, the world-leading sustainability multi-media company that also runs the hugely successful EV Summit, is launching a major new campaign for 2022 called EV Meet-Ups on 9 September.
EV Meet-Ups will see existing electric vehicle (EV) drivers arrange localised meet-ups with prospective EV drivers. This is to inform and excite them about the benefits of moving over to driving an electric vehicle.
This could be as simple as someone with a domestic charger and an EV arranging to speak with their neighbours, or an international charge point operator (CPO) managing meet-ups across their global network of EV hubs.
Ade Thomas, World EV Day founder, said: “World EV Day was a project born out of lock-down when digital campaigning was the only tool in our locker.
“2022 sees us take a super exciting new point of departure, as we escape the orbit of COVD, and are able to engage the global emobility sector around real world, in-person, activity, in the form of EV Meet-Ups.”
If you like the idea of creating an EV Meet-Up you could simply find your local EV hub, car park or green space and set up a gathering. EV Meet-Ups has a downloadable social kit that can be used to create a call-out on social media.
If you’re a member of a Facebook group for your vehicle, post to that and let EV Meet-Up know about your plan here. Then you just need to hold your EV Meet-Up and you’ll be part of a global movement helping the transition to electric vehicles and a cleaner greener future.
Thomas added: “World EV Day is looking for a sponsor for the inaugural EV Meet-Ups. It’s a perfect opportunity for a large global organisation that is keen to engage with both the charge point operator and automotive sectors, as well as a worldwide consumer base.”
To share your EV Meet-Up and help the growing revolution use the hashtags #evmeetups and #WEVD2022.
