Green Drinks Edmonton

Green Drinks Edmonton is a simple, unstructured event that brings together environmentally-minded Edmontonians in a relaxed, agenda-free evening of networking and great conversation.  In Edmonton, we do Green Drinks with a slight difference: the events are themed to bring interested people and local experts together, to facilitate introductions and foster collaborations.

Whether you work in the environmental field or are just breaking in, it’s a chance to mingle with a lively mixture of people from NGOs, academia, government, and business, share information and make friends. Although Green Drinks Edmonton is an organic, casual event, many people have found employment, developed new ideas, made business connections, and had moments of serendipity! Bring your friends and ideas – everyone is welcome! 


Upcoming Green Drinks Events: 

When: Wednesday, September 5, 7 pm – 10 pm 
Where: Yellowhead Brewery
Putting the Green in Green Drinks! For many of us, it can feel like you’re shouting at a wall (either Facebook or figurative) about all the local issues, pending crises, and global catastrophes. Still, some choose not to see the realities of climate change as it shapes our world. Whether you’re thinking globally to push for the Paris Climate Accord or thinking locally about petitioning to save one species or a section of the River Valley, it’s more important than ever to focus on ways we can affect change. Green Drinks: YEG Climate is a way to bring together environmentally-minded Edmontonians to share strategies and building on the work we’re already doing. Join us to learn more about what great local organizations are working on and share your own knowledge in the process. We need all the help and ideas we can get!
Tickets: $10 in advance (purchase here) or $15 at the door
