Green Drinks Greensboro is holding its 2nd event, to be held at Sessions on 1820 Spring Garden St. (near UNCG), on Wednesday October 9th from 5:30-7.  Several diverse organizations are collaborating to create a fun, open space for people to communicate, learn, teach, share projects and work together to turn ideas into practice. Representatives from the Piedmont Plateau Group of the Sierra Club, UNCG Sustainability, Occupy Greensboro Energy Working Group, and the IRC-TG Edible Community Garden project have joined forces to plan for several upcoming events.   This event is sponsored by Piedmont Plateau Group (PPG) of the Sierra Club.  ALL ARE WELCOME!

The first Green Drinks event was a great success with over 30 attendees that care about people, community, sustainability and the environment.  We enjoyed beer, wine, coffee, food, and most importantly networked and exchanged information on issues of mutual interest.  Sessions has coffee, wine and one of best beer selections in Greensboro.  They also have a lovely & large outdoor setting!

In November, the Occupy Greensboro Energy Working Group will sponsor a gathering at “Tavo” on Elm.

Background:


What is
Green Drinks?


It's a social hour.  It's a networking event.  It's unwinding with friends.  It's a time and place where it's okay to be green and to find out what others in your city are doing to be green, work green, play green, or live green. And it happens in over 700 cities worldwide.


Who should attend Green Drinks?


We invite everyone who cares about the environment, teach about and learn about the environment, work in an environment-related field, have interest in the environment, environmental products, sustainable building, environmental protection, eating local, ecological design, alternative energy… you get the idea.  There will be no agenda and there are no dues. From time-to-time we will allow a few minutes for short presentations.
