Principal Sponsor

Bloomberg L.P.

Thank you so much to Bloomberg whose generous support makes Deckchair Dreams, a public art adventure which transforms the landscapes of London's Royal Parks over summer, possible. About their involvement, they told us:

Bringing together the core strands of environmental sustainability and innovation in education, this dynamic Royal Parks Foundation project not only raises awareness and essential funding to protect green spaces across the city for Londoners as a whole, but also provides an exciting  opportunity for local schools to engage creatively with both nature and design. Bloomberg is proud that  deckchairs designed by school children and community groups will be showcased alongside those of key designers and that funding raised through the project will be channelled back into the continuing development of the Royal Parks Foundation’s ongoing environmental education initiatives.

Bloomberg is a global business and financial information and news leader, giving influential decision makers a critical edge by connecting them to a dynamic network of information, people and ideas. Through support of cultural and educational organisations worldwide, Bloomberg demonstrates a strong commitment to expanding access to art and education and to identifying new opportunities to create real impact for the company and for its communities worldwide.
