GreenUps - Sydney's Green Drinks Pages

WHO is it for?
GreenUps are for people with an interest / passion / concern for the environment and sustainability. No matter what your profession. GreenUps is about creating connections across a range of different sectors. Whether you work in business, science, education, design, the media, the arts, the law, government, NGO’s, IT, you name it. We’d like to hear over a beer what you’re doing. Or what you think should be happening in Sydney or in your area of work when it comes to sustainable development. You can see us in action on the GreenUps photo page.

WHAT is it? (And HOW on earth will drinking help the Earth anyway?)
We reckon there’s a groundswell of Sydneysiders quietly beavering away at sustainability in this big, bad, development-centric city. Maybe you’re one of them. Or maybe you want to do more, and are looking for ways to seriously get into it. If this is you, you’re not alone! There’s more of us out there. (You can find us having a drink at GreenUps.)

GreenUps provide an incubator for ideas, connections, inspiration and support. Our goal is to help take sustainability from the fringe to the mainstream. We’ll organise the bar and the social environment. You just need to come (and bring people like you.)

GreenUps is part of Green Drinks International. There's over 800 cities around the world with green drinks gatherings. We think it’s about time Sydney made its mark.

HOW MUCH does it cost to get in?
Most events are free or gold coin donation. You just need to buy your own drinks. For some special events, we may need to charge to cover costs.

WHEN and WHERE is it?
It's monthly – the first Tuesday of each month. Normally starting at 6pm. Usually at an inner city bar in Sydney.

WHO is behind this thing?
Currently there's: Liane Rossler (co-founder of Dinosaur Designs), Jess Miller (owner of Goody Two Shoes) and Ben Ward (owner of The Falconer Cafe) - with some new people now pitching in (including Saskia Howard of Green Arts Project.) The initial idea was germinated by Dan Cass (ex Greenpeace) and Phil Stubbs (of The Environment Show.) Other past organisers have included Alastair Walton (ex City of Sydney), Kate Bedwell (Qantas) and Dave Gravina (Digital Eskimo design agency.)
