Monica Pohlmann and Rob Abbott started this group in 2009 to provide a conversation space where folks active in all realms of sustainability in Calgary could connect and learn more about the wide range of initiatives already happening in our city. The group was taken over in late 2010 by REAP Business Association and The Office of Sustainability at The City of Calgary when Monica and Rob moved their world headquarters to Victoria, BC. Since then the group has continued to grow and thrive, averaging 80-100 guests per Meetup.
For those of you who have not yet had the opportunity to join us for breakfast, here is the general flow of our meetings:
MINGLE (7:30-8:00 am) - grab a name tag and meet others in the room to learn more about their involvement with the month's theme
EAT (7:30-8:00 am) - breakfast is provided, so grab some food and a coffee (we love it when people bring their own travel mugs!) and fuel up for the discussion
WELCOME (7:55-8:00 am) - brief introduction of the organizers, event host, topic and presenters as well as how the topic links to the imagineCALGARY targets
LEARN (8:00-8:45 am) - sometimes one and sometimes as many as four brief presentations on a particular topic related to sustainability
SHARE (8:45-9:00 am) - ask the presenters your burning questions and/or let the group know about your new initiative or upcoming event (time permitting)
As there are many different initiatives underway in Calgary, we invite you to share your upcoming event or information on the wall of the Meetup page. Presentations (where available) from each Meetup will be posted for your ongoing reference under "More/files".
We look forward to seeing you!
