@Aditya Birla Finance Limited & the White Owl (Lower Parel)
Opening talk by Anna Warrington from Forum for the Future on their futures technique. In front of a full house, Anna presented the technique and illustrated it with very instructive, entertaining and sometimes confrontational examples from their daily practice. The afterhours networking in the White Owl saw lively debates on the role of CSR as well as interesting (re)new(ed) connections between the corporates, consultants, designers, researchers and NGO's present.

@ the White Owl (Lower Parel))
Opening talk by our own Rutuja Tendolar on Sustainability in Finance, giving the group a great quick course in what sustainability in finance means, how and where it is used and what the status of developments is in the field. The group was small but very excited to meet after a long time and with the new concept with the opening talk.

We had a nice meetup last Saturday in Cocoa Cafe in Bandra. Topics included teaching moleculair biology, educational environments, whether organic food is actually sustainable, air quality measurements, LED solar lighting, and many others that I missed. Hope to have such a great response next month too! The group unanimously decided to hold next meetings on Saturday evenings to allow office people from other parts of town to join in.

28th March 2011
On a balmy Monday evening, in anticipation of the upcoming "Cricket Blockbuster" a motley bunch of professionals met up at the Mumbai Times Cafe over wine, nimboo paani, beer and loads of pleasanteries. There were the eco-entrepreneurs who dazzled with their confidence and ideas; the finance guys with their air of perceptible change at walking the talk; the cheeky green consultants with oodles of wit; and photographers, advertising professionals, MBA students and the like....
Conversation flowed freely from the vision of a solar-powered REWA to importing green power from Nepal... Our second meet in the Green Drinks, Mumbai chapter set off in style our endeavour of creating a microcosm of a professional community, committed to doing things differently....
Join us for our next meet towards the end of April and in the meanwhile, Chak De India.....!!!!!!

The first meet of Green Drinks, Mumbai saw a gathering of over 20 people or so, some of whom actively dabbled in sustainability or related fields while others represented the curious/the interested/the supporters. As an introductory meet, we wanted to keep the evening low on agenda and high on fun. However, for our forthcoming initiative, we want to structure the focus of networking around an activity. So in case of any suggestions or enquiries, do contact us. In the meanwhile, join our Facebook page and we'll keep you updated on when we are meeting next.
