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. Over the year, we present a range of topics aligned to the One Planet Living principles. The format may include keynote presentations, expert panels, technology showcase, short films or practical workshops. We also offer a few 2-minute pop-up spots to people seeking to promote an upcoming event, project or campaign. Prior arrangement with event organiser is required. Are you interested in being part of Geelong’s transition to a cleaner, greener economy? If yes, then join us after work to find out what’s happening locally and beyond.
