Green Drinks - August 2016


Geelong Sustainability's monthly social networking event - Geelong Green Drinks - is a great way to learn about what's new and happening in our region and to connect with others working in the sustainability sector.

We present a diverse program across the year with keynote speakers and informative presentations focused on the key sustainability themes like Energy, Waste, Environment, Food, Water, Housing and Community.

We also provide several pop-up spots so people can promote future events, projects and campaigns. Contact the event organiser to book a spot.

Green Drinks is usually held on the fourth Wednesday at Beav's Bar, 77 Little Malop Street from 5.30-7.30pm.

Our next Geelong Green Drinks is on Wednesday 24th August.


Theme: What's Geelong's Future

Come along to this special Geelong Green Drinks as we begin a very important dialogue about what Geelong's future should look like.

Be informed - Be inspired - Be connected

Be informed as you watch the short film The Economics of Happiness and be challenged by the imperative to replace globalisation with localisation.

Then be inspired as our prodigal Danish journalist returns to Geelong with visionary tales from his latest European adventure.

And finally, connect with others to identify the important elements for a more productive, liveable and sustainable region.

Keynote speaker: Mik Aidt - Journalist, The Sustainable Hour Co-Host, Blogger.
