Our regular networking forum is known colloquially as Green Drinks. This monthly event provides a relaxed setting where people can meet and share the latest information, inspiring stories and innovative ideas. The annual calendar is planned to offer different themes each month aligned to One Planet Living principles.
This social event is a great way to connect with like-minded people after work from community groups, local business, government departments and sustainability/environmental agencies. Depending on the topic, the format may include presentations, short films or workshops plus Q&A sessions. Proceedings generally start around 6pm.
We also offer a few 2-minute pop-up spots to people wishing to promote an upcoming event, project or campaign. Contact the organisers to pre-arrange a pop-up spot.
