Think Green? Drink Green!
Green Drinks Leeds is on the 4th Wednesday 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
The Black Prince, 40 Boar Lane, Leeds LS1 5DA
Welcome to Green Drinks Leeds in 2015!
This month, we welcome Rob Greenland from Leeds Empties, which helps to bring empty homes back into use. Their 'Green Empties' project involves insulating the homes as part of bringing them back into use. We're pleased to finally have Rob speaking after a couple of cancellations.
We will be meeting at The Black Prince, a new pub on City Square (although it gives its address as Boar Lane) and a potential permanent venue for Green Drinks Leeds
The following two events are also loosely on the theme of sustainable buildings, with Delton Jackson of Leeds City Council in February on a new sustainable housing project, and Lianne Duxbury of Sheffield Hallam University Architecture School in March - but don't worry if that's not your cup of tea, as we're planning for there to be less talk (from speakers) and more talk (amongst ourselves) this year, with shorter presentations and more time for chat
In February, Delton Jackson of Leeds City Council will be talking about a new sustainable housing project. More details will follow soon
In March, we'll be hearing from Lianne Duxbury of the Architecture School at Sheffield Hallam University
