Green Drinks, Whanganui is at a new venue – Stellar Bar & Restaurant, cnr Taupo Quay and Victoria Avenue. Held on the 2nd Tuesday evening of each month from 5.30pm, we join an international community of 498 cities and towns worldwide which host Green Drinks. There is no political agenda, just a desire to enjoy environmentally-conscious conversations. A guest speaker will present for 15-20 minutes from about 6pm.

From the Green Drinks International website:
“Every month people who work in the environmental field meet up at informal sessions known as Green Drinks.

We have a lively mixture of people from NGOs, academia, government and business. Come along and you’ll be made welcome. Just say, ‘are you green?’ and we will look after you and introduce you to whoever is there. It’s a great way of catching up with people you know and also for making new contacts. Everyone invites someone else along, so there’s always a different crowd, making Green Drinks an organic, self-organising network.

These events are very simple and unstructured, but many people have found employment, made friends, developed new ideas, done deals and had moments of serendipity. It’s a force for the good and we’d like to help it spread to other cities.”
