UPDATE 2016: Green Drinks Corner Brook is on hiatus until we find someone to take the lead on organizing. If you are interested in being the Green Drinks organizer, please contact The Western Environment Centre at firstname.lastname@example.org. This is a very easy event to organize and only takes an hour a month to do so (plus the time attending the event). You will have the support of a group of volunteers who have previously organzied the event and can fill you in on what to do.
What is the Green Drinks Corner Brook recipe?
A jovial mix of people from all walks of life from business, government, academia, NGOs, outdoor tourism, to anyone else interested in the environment + a few pints (or non-alcoholic drinks) = A relaxed and agenda-free evening of enviro-meeting and greeting.
Green Drinks International started in the UK in 1989 and has rapidly become a worldwide event with over 800 chapters! These events are very simple and unstructured. There are no presentations or agendas, just a relaxed and inviting atmosphere to unwind in and chat about what ever environmental topics interest you. It's also a great way to network and have fun. Many people have made friends, met new business partners, developed new ideas, found employment and had moments of serendipity.
The first Thursday of every month from 7pm - 9:00pm.
The evening is unstructured, so feel free to drop in at whatever time suits your schedule.
King Henry's Pub in the Glynmill Inn (Must be 19 years of age older).
1B Cobb Lane, Corner Brook, Newfoundland, A2H 6E6. Tel: 709-634-5181.
This lively little pub has a selection of local and imported beers, including some on tap. They also have a delicious pub menu if you are hungry after a hard day at work or school.
How to attend:
RSVPS are not necessary, just drop on by - we will look after you and introduce you to whoever is there. And by all means, bring your friends, family or colleagues! Green Drinks is a great way of catching up with people you know and for making new contacts. Our average attendance varies and it's a different group every month...we are definitely not cliquey!
