About this event

Green Drinks Mississauga - IN PERSON image

Masks will be required, and we ask you to please be mindful of social distancing and people's comfort levels but come ready to see some smiling faces (even if it's just the eyes!) and make some green connections!

We hope to see you there and look forward to growing our community once more.

Games are available to play at LVLUP, there is a $5 fee/person to play. This is an optional activity and not required to participate in our event (we have not made plans to play any board games; though aren't keeping the idea off the table either).

Green Drinks Mississauga is a volunteer run community group focused on stimulating conversation around environmental or 'green' topics, issues, and often local solutions!

The 3rd Tuesday of every month, environmental and business professionals, entrepreneurs, students, volunteers, job-seekers, government representatives, and citizens from all over Mississauga and surrounding cities get together to make connections within the green community.(For now we do this online). Every 3rd Tuesday of the month we're trying to return to in person meetings.

FAQs

What is Green Drinks?

The short version: 

An international movement of awesomeness, a self-organizing network, monthly meetups in different cities for people working/volunteering or studying green and environmental issues. 

The long version: 

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-organizing 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.
