parliament hill.jpgCamden Air Action invites you to

An end of summer Clean Air / Blue Skies Picnic at 2 – 5 pm THIS Saturday 9 September 2017 on Parliament Hill Fields.

Join us to stretch out the final days of summer and share dreams + bright ideas for cleaning up the air in our back to work lives in Camden.

We’ll be spreading our picnic blankets alongside the Stone of Free speech on the grassy east facing slopes of Parliament HillIf 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 frisbees to entertain the kids? Get the latest news on local and London wide action to end air pollution – especially around our local schools. Catch up with friends and make new contacts for cleaning up the air we breathe.

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