A meal fit for a planet!
World Environment Day is the United Nations Environment Program’s (UNEP) most important day for encouraging worldwide awareness and action for the protection of our environment. Since it began in 1974, it has grown to become a global platform for public outreach that is widely celebrated in over 100 countries.
For the past 42 years the Bournda EEC WED Dinner has celebrated our beautiful planet and ways to protect it from harm. This year we invite you to join us online for a dinner with a difference with The (fantastic) New Graces.
Send us the meal plan of your WED Meal Fit For A Planet and tell us how the ingredients contribute to protecting biodiversity and easing the burden on the world’s precious resources, in line with the 2020 theme, #TimeForNature.
Share photographs of your meal and your Covid-19 safe gathering with the hashtags #MealFitForAPlanet #TimeForNature #WED2020
To everything (turn, turn, turn)
There is a SEASON (turn, turn, turn)
As we celebrate #TimeForNature, what could be more appropriate than musical accompaniment from The New Graces! Seasons, their brilliant new album, has just reached the Number 1 Australian Country Album position on the ARIA Charts so we feel very privileged to have Robyn, Kate and Mel supporting the event. Their music is imbued with a deep sensitivity and care, for people and the environment, that is so desperately needed in these times.
The $10 cover charge (plus 50 cent booking fee) will be our contribution to helping these talented local musicians weather the coronavirus storm. You can donate more if you want to and they absolutely deserve it!
SO, the ingredients so far are local food, local creative talent, local environment and local action! If you are jumping out of your seat and asking, “I want in but how is this going to work?”, read on!
How is this going to work?
The virtual dinner will be held online and tickets are $10.50 each. We only have 90 tickets to sell so you really only need one per household as you can share a screen or possibly protect. Maintain social and physical distancing as required!
Step 1 – Go to the TryBooking site to PURCHASE your ticket.
Step 2 – TryBooking will send you a confirmation of your purchase which will include a link to REGISTER your place in the Zoom Meeting Room. You will need a ZOOM account and they are free.
Step 3 – When you register your place Zoom will send you another email with the MEETING ROOM details including a link and a password
Step 4 – PLAN, PREPARE and SHARE details of your #MealFitForAPlanet and on Friday 5th June at 6:50pm you can use the Zoom link and password and JOIN IN THE FUN!
Step 5 – Gather around the screen while maintaining social distance, get ready to eat and sing to celebrate the remarkable BLUE DOT that sustains all life as we know it. Dress FESTIVELY but if you choose to turn your video on (optional), dress decently – it’s a family show!
The dinner is INTERACTIVE so there will be questions and other interesting things going on and a few SURPRISES which we can’t tell you about because then it wouldn’t be a SURPRISE! The dinner is expected to conclude at around 8pm.
