Think Green? Drink Green!
Green Drinks Leeds is on the 4th Tuesday of every month at The Lounge on Merrion Street, with monthly events including talks, panel discussions, workshops and visits
New: We're upstairs, which means less noise from the quiz which The Lounge hose at the same time
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
This month at Green Drinks Leeds we welcome David Midgeley of Schumacher North, who will be introducing us to the "One Planet Leeds" project. Based on Jeremy Rifkin's "Third Industrial Revolution", a strategy which is being taken forward by groups at a number of levels, from the European Union to large companies and cities across Europe such as Rome and Utrecht; David will introduce the concept of a compassionate, planet-friendly and beautiful city for the twenty-first century.
We will be upstairs at The Lounge, which means less noise disruption (though further to travel to the bar…)
As usual, we encourage you to sign up on Eventbrite
There won't be a Green Drinks on Christmas Eve, though stay tuned (to our mailing list and social media) for information about our Winter Warmer
Green Drinks Leeds is part of a global network of over 650 monthly events worldwide, but all have their own "local flavour"
