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!
Where & When:
We meet at The Yellowhead Brewery on the first Wednesday of most months from 7 – 10 pm.
Upcoming Green Drinks Events:
A green economy aims to generate economic growth and advancement, improve human well-being, and promote social equity without depleting natural resources and degrading the environment. With several political changes occurring globally, how will our daily lives change at home? Join the conversation this Green Drinks as we ponder the future of Edmonton’s economy and environment over refreshing beverages and Yellowhead beer.
On March 1, come meet and connect with some of the leading figures & thinkers in our local community and learn what strange and wonderful things are emerging in our city.
