Picnic for Earth

Celebrate Earth Day with Gateway Green & The Nature Conservancy

 

EVENT BACKGROUND

The Nature Conservancy, alongside their partners, sponsor picnics around the world to celebrate Earth Day. Gateway Green teamed up with the Nature Conservancy in 2013 to bring an Earth Day picnic to Chicago’s beloved Millennium Park.

This event was about raising awareness of the significant challenges facing our global agriculture system.  As our population grows, our natural food resources have become overburdened.  The Nature Conservancy is on the front lines of innovating effective ways to address this important issue. The Picnic for Earth program asks people to think about where their food comes from, how what they eat impacts the Earth and their own well-being.  The goal is to get people to make more sustainable food choices, and to consider how such decisions affect our environment.
