Family picnic at Olivia

On June 3, 2023, as part of the celebration of Children’s Day and the celebration of the “VIVA Oliwa” district, an EcoPicnic was held at the Olivia Centre business center in Gdańsk.


The EcoPicnic was addressed to a diverse group of recipients, including residents of Olivia Centre, employees of companies based in this business centre and their families. The event also attracted students, parents and the teaching staff of Primary School No. 35 with Sports Departments in Gdańsk Oliwa, as well as residents and guests visiting Oliwa.


The main objective of the event was to promote the principles of sustainable development, raise the level of environmental awareness and shape ecological attitudes in society. As part of the EcoPicnic, knowledge in the field of climate, environmental protection and sustainable development was disseminated, with particular emphasis on the role of new technologies in the service of the environment. A significant contribution to this part of the programme was made by the Foundation for the Development of the University of Gdańsk.



In order to achieve the specific objective of shaping pro-environmental behaviours, the organisers focused on direct actions that have a direct impact on the environment. Particular attention was paid to children and adolescents, among whom these attitudes were shaped using various forms of ecological activity.



The event also served to promote social activation and build a sense of community among the inhabitants of Gdańsk, the employees of Olivia Centre and the participants of the picnic. The organized activities were aimed at emphasizing the common goals of taking care of the space in which we live, work and develop.



To sum up, the EcoPicnic was an event that allowed for an effective combination of environmental education and social integration. The experience gained and the positive reactions of the participants are an encouragement for further actions in this direction.


Thanks to the publications on the Olivia Centre website and the publications of partners, the information about the event reached over 80 thousand unique users.

The eligible cost of the task amounted to PLN 41,193.40, the amount co-financed: PLN 36,213.12.
