Think Green? Drink Green!
Green Drinks Leeds is on the 4th Wednesday of every month at The Black Prince on City Square, with monthly events including talks, panel discussions, workshops and visits
Green Drinks Leeds is for everyone working in and around the environment in Leeds and the surrounding area.
Whatever your perspective - business, community or government, academic, student or activist - Green Drinks is a great way to make new contacts, catch up with friends or just hang out with people who share your values.
We're a lively and growing group, so pop down for a quick drink after work or stick around for the evening and enjoy the conversation. We open at 6pm for open networking, and the main event usually begins around 7 to 7.30pm
The Black Prince, 40 Boar Lane, Leeds LS1 5DA
Like all big cities in the UK, Leeds is struggling with the outcomes and continuing process of car-based large scale development which started in the mid 20th century. The patterns of activity, space use and movement which this induced led to increasing emissions and a range of social, environmental and health impacts. Join us at the next Green Drinks Leeds for a walk exploring the issue of making Sustainable Places and Movement (SPAM) in Central Leeds, led by joint coordinator Anzir Boodoo
Anzir Boodoo works with Samuel L. Foxton to explore the issues of urban sustainability through video, play and collaboration. He is a former transport planner and academic who also works with the Chartered Institute of Logistics & Transport, the New Mobility Agenda, Planners Network UK and Schumacher North
As usual, we'll be open from 6pm for open networking or a quick after work drink, we will set off on the walk at 7pm, and return to The Black Prince for drinks and discussion
In August, we'll be welcoming Chris Bem, organiser of Green Conversations in Bradford, who will be talking about what a healthy economy is and how we can create one. This is a change, as this was previously advertised for July
