I am helping to organise the Green Party Picnic for the Planet early next year. Would CAW be interested in having a stall there?
"Picnic for the Planet is the first Green Party event of each year. It is a day of festivities centred around the Co-Leaders' State of the Planet speech. The speech is an inspiring and scene-setting account of the Green Party plan for the year. The Picnics have become a landmark in the annual political calendar, with TV news coverage of the event. People from all walks of life come together for the day to celebrate the goal of living together on the planet in a sustainable way."
This will be held at Frank Kitts Park on Sunday 24th January, probably from noon til 5pm. The Picnic will also include free live bands, food stalls and children's activities. Both Green party members and the public will be encouraged to attend, and we expect passersby will also be interested.
The idea of having space for other organisations to have stalls is to encourage people attending to learn about and get engaged in issues in their own community. Ideally, some stalls will have an interactive element, rather than simply information.
