Leeds Green Drinks

Think Green? Drink Green!

Green Drinks Leeds is on the 4th Tuesday of every month, 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


Tuesday 22 April - Eco-fair: Behind the scenes

Sam Saxby, Eco-fair

Outlaws Yacht Club, 38 New York Street, Leeds LS2 7DY

>> sign up on Eventbrite



Eco-Fair is an annual business expo which takes place in Leeds.
This year 1,000 delegates will attend on the 22nd May.
80% will go away from the show inspired to make changes in their business.
Five years ago, this event only existed as an untested concept. Find out how the event was started, how we make it work, and what is lined up for in this years’ programme. We’ll cover creating a vision, partnership working, marketing and how to come up with a commercial offer.
Sam Saxby is the driving force behind Eco-Fair. She has been working on environmental support programs for businesses for eight years. She has an undergraduate degree in Ecology and a Postgraduate Certificate in Sustainable Waste Management. Sam is on the local IEMA (Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment) Steering Group. She doesn’t leave Bradford as much as she should, so let’s give her a good Green Drinks welcome in Leeds.


Following really positive feedback last month, we'll again be at Outlaws Yacht Club on New York Street. Green Drinkers last month enjoyed the venue's laid back vibe, and locally sourced beer, coffee and food - and if you didn't come down last month, we hope you will too.


As usual, we encourage you to sign up on Eventbrite

Tuesday 27 May - CityConnect Cycle Superhighway
