Green the Grey, June 4th 2011

You were many on Saturday June 4th to come and enjoy the pop-up park on Sassine Square. After setting up 100square meters of grass on the cement, we invited everybody to come enjoy it.
We gathered, played music, games, lounged on the grass, passed around fruits and snacks,and enjoyed a sunny picnic.

On that day, 400 people claimed their public green space back by greening the grey.
Thank you for Green Line for donating the grass, thank you for the Scouts and volunteers who helped us set up the park, thank you to all the photographers who came and documented the event, Thank you to everyone who helped us with the preparations, and thank you for all 400 supporters that day.

Video will be uploaded soon, stay tuned!

In the meantime, enjoy the green pictures on our new Flickr account! Click on the link for more pictures!
