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
First we'll be at the Victoria Family & Commercial Hotel, where Anzir Boodoo of World Streets Online will be introducing the draft of their Citizen Cycle Audit tool, and inviting you to test it out and help develop it, over a drink or two
Next, we'll be crossing over to the Oxford Place Centre, where Schumacher North will be spending an evening with Drew Dellinger, an ecological poet who will be speaking on justice, ecology, cosmology, and compassion. Drew has developed cult status as a voice of our connection with the wider cosmos. He has been called “a national treasure” by Joanna Macy, “a deep and courageous poet” by Alice Walker and “one of the most creative, courageous and prophetic voices of his generation” by Cornel West
There is a suggested donation for this event to support the speaker, venue and Schumacher North
As usual, we encourage you to sign up on Eventbrite
We're hoping to welcome Rob Greenland from Leeds Empties for our October event, and reveal our new (hopefully) permanent home
