Currently active in 642 cities worldwide, Green Drinks are monthly unstructured networking events for people that have an interest in the environmental field. The events are very simple and informal, but many people have found employment, made friends, and developed new ideas and partnerships.
“This event provides people who have a passion for nature to share stories and make new connections in the comfort of a laid-back atmosphere,” notes Jared Tomie, one of this month’s featured speakers.
The topic for February’s event is Living with Nature: Benefits and Best Practices with informal discussions led by Jared Tomie, ACAP Environment Project Manager, and David McCorquodale, co-host of the Bird Hour on CBC Radio and Dean of Science and Technology at Cape Breton University.
Admission to the event is free but attendees must buy their own food and drinks. Drinks are not green nor do they have to be alcoholic. Donations will be accepted at the door.
ACAP Cape Breton is a non-profit, charitable community organization that integrates environmental, social and economic factors into projects focusing on action, education and ecosystem planning. For more information, phone 567-1628.
