Our Valentine's Day event had to be postponed, but we're thrilled to bring it to you on February 28! Extinction Rebellion asks you to show your love for the life support system that makes all other forms of love possible: Planet Earth. Come and find out what YOU can do about the Climate Emergency in a relaxed family-friendly day in the park. The picnic is open to all, with live music (Ludovic and the Broken Rubies), workshops for adults, as well as block-printing workshops for kids. Featuring guest speakers including Sustainable You (https://www.sustainableyoupod.com/) talking on a range of topics, from a crash course in the latest climate science to how to speak to children about the Climate Crisis. Bring a blanket and some snacks, and blank T-shirts if you want to get involved in the block printing. All of this is weather (and COVID) permitting!
