Picnic in the Park is being organised by Maynooth Community Council in conjunction with the Climate Action Office in Kildare County Council and will take place in Harbour Field, Maynooth on Sunday 18th June 2-5pm. This is the second year of the event and offers a fun filled day for the local community.
The Climate Action Office involvement this year is to promote and offer informal consultation on Maynooth having been selected as the Decarbonising Zone (DZ) for the county and thus Maynooth will provide a very important testbed. The practical experience and knowledge gained will accelerate learning in the county and inform future decarbonization measures.
As well as important consultation and information, ‘Picnic in the Park’ will also have lots of fun activities for all members of the community including sports, arts & crafts, face painting, a caricaturist and environmental themed performances and workshops. A photographer will be present on the day to catalogue events. The theme of the event is climate action, sustainability, active travel, biodiversity and circular economy.
Aidan Ring is an environmental activist and performer. Aidan will provide a spoken word Eco-Diabolo show (the diabolo is that giant yo-yo type device with two handsticks and a string). This show will entertain both the younger and older attendees.
