What is Green Drinks?
Upper Valley Green Drinks is sponsored by Sustainable Woodstock and has taken place every month Since 2014. We invite local and regional non-profits, businesses and individuals to make a short presentation that highlights their sustainability and “Green” initiatives in our area. Our hope is to foster an open and fun atmosphere which is welcoming to everyone who wants to join in. We work to engage people in new initiatives and empower them to get involved and take action in our communities.
When and Where?
Green Drinks usually take place on the 3rd Thursday of every Month. They are free and open to everyone. With some exceptions, events are held over zoom and recorded to later be shared out to a wider audience. They are also broadcast on local public access television.
Why “Green Drinks?”
Green Drinks began in 1989 in London as a meeting for environmental professionals and has spread across the UK, now with chapters worldwide.
“Collaboration is the key to efficient problem solving. Green Drinks brings us all together in one room to meet like-minded people on the cutting edge of what’s next in sustainability. Meeting people outside of your regular circles helps you avoid professional mono-culture.”
