HI! I'm Kaitlin and I work in the environmental industry.
Green Drinks Calgary is a monthly event that brings together environmentally-minded Calgarians in a relaxed, agenda-free evening of networking and merriment. It is the local initiative of a larger "Green Drinks" movement, with over 500 other local meetups happening around the world (thus the name). We are "green" people meeting over drinks, thus the name (drinking is not required to attend).
Whether you work in the environmental field or are just breaking in, it's a chance to mingle with a lively mixture of people from NGOs, academia, government and business, share information and make friends. Although Green Drinks Calgary is an organic, casual event, many people have found employment, developed new ideas, made business connections, and had moments of serendipity! We join together the Calgary environmental community and have fun doing it! Bring your friends and ideas - everyone is welcome!
I encourage you to join our meetup.com group so that you can get our event reminder every month and see who else is coming to the events. I also encourage you to join us on Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+ and Twitter to stay informed of our activities and other news.
Green Drinks Calgary is made possible, in part, with the generous support of sponsors like:
