An Introduction:

Whether you are keen to reduce your carbon footprint, start a citizens' movement or try to navigate through corporate social responsibility, ISO 14000 and all that jazz, there's a place for your voice at Green Drinks, Mumbai. We are just one of over 756 such events all across the globe.

We hope to encourage a lively bunch of people from NGOs, academia, government and business to come along to our monthly meets at a local pub. It's a great way of catching up with people you know and also for making new contacts. Everyone invites someone else along, so there’s always a different crowd, making Green Drinks an organic, self-organising network.

These events are very simple and unstructured, but many people across Green Drinks in various cities have found employment, made friends, developed new ideas, done deals etc.

Previous meetings:

24th February 2011

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.

Cheers!!!

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 meeting after a very long gap was small but interesting.

20th October 2012

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.
