Camden Air Action / Blue Skies Picnic

9th September, Parliament Hill, 2-5pm. Join us to stretch out summer and share dreams & bright ideas for cleaning up the air in our back-to-school lives in Camden.

We’ll be spreading our picnic blankets alongside the Stone of Free speech on the grassy east facing slopes of Parliament Hill. (If you’re coming from Highgate Road, head up the hill on the paved path that runs up behind the Café, and you’ll find us on the right. If you are coming from the south, just keep going over the shoulder of the hill beyond the bandstand.)

Everyone welcome at this family friendly information sharing social event. Bring a picnic blanket and food and drink to share. Maybe skipping ropes and frizbees to entertain the kids? Get the latest updates on local and London wide action to end air pollution – especially to improve conditions around our local schools. Share stories of summer travels and local events. Catch up with friends and make new contacts for cleaning up the air we breathe.

Bring friends & family, or just yourself, to indulge in some Blue Skies Thinking on ways we can work together to co-create clean air communities in Camden.
