is celebrating its one year anniversary this February – so come help us celebrate! Having a monthly networking event for like-minded sustainability professionals was the idea of Duncan Ayling, who noticed that Cape Town was not yet part of the global Green Drinks community. What started off as a small gathering of a few people has now turned into a popular and regular feature on the Cape Town events and networking calendar.
What does Green Drinks stand for? Quite simply that progress is made easier by collaborating with each other, not working in silos; looking outwards, not inwards; and engaging and learning from people of diverse backgrounds and nationalities. #weaccept
Once again we would like to keep with our `happy hour` tradition but for that we need a company with a green heart to sponsor a few bottles of wine. If your company is interested then please let us know asap. Past sponsors have been REH Group, 3E and Arcus Consulting, who we would like to thank for the generous support.
If you have any brilliant ideas for us or you’re interested in helping to organise future events, please let us know. (Green Drinks is a collaborative, volunteer event.) The best way is to speak to one of us at an event, otherwise email firstname.lastname@example.org.
So, if you have an interest / passion / concern for the environment and sustainability, no matter what your profession, then we look forward meeting you.
Every month people who work in the sustainability field meet up at informal sessions known as Green Drinks which are an incubator for ideas, connections, inspiration and support. Our goal is to help take sustainability from the fringe to the mainstream. We’ll organise the bar and the social environment. You just need to come (and bring people like you.)
People with an interest / passion / concern for the environment and sustainability. No matter what your profession. Green Drinks is about creating connections across a range of different sectors. Whether you work in business, science, education, design, the media, the arts, the law, government, NGO’s, IT, you name it. We’d like to hear over a beer what you’re doing. Or what you think should be happening in Cape Town or in your area of work when it comes to sustainable development.
Entry is free of charge but you will need to buy your own drinks (except during happy hour).
5.30 – 8.30pm on the last Thursday of every month.
