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.

Leeds City Council has ambitious plans to create a citywide district heating network supplying low carbon and lower cost heat to businesses and residents. This is based on a masterplan developed by Ramboll in 2014 and will, when fully complete, be operated on an open source basis with many different heat suppliers and customers benefitting. To help make the long-term plan a reality, the council aims to construct the first phase of a citywide spine network that will take heat from the Recycling and Energy Recovery Facility and deliver it to businesses in the city centre and council flats close to St James' Hospital. Come along and hear the latest position including grant applications, the possible route and how planning policies are now helping
Our speaker is George Munson, Senior Programme Leader of the Projects, Programmes & Procurement Unit at Leeds City Council
In July, we will be hosting a joint event with The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (UK), who took over the resources of Cycling England when that was disbanded and help run the European Cycling Forum. We'll be looking at the practicality of cargo bikes with Last Mile, who deliver parcels in Central Leeds on behalf of DHL and others
