Description

Green Drinks is back in London and we are hosting our next event at Joe Kool's in the back room on Thursday October 5th from 6pm-9pm. Thanks to everyone who has attended June and August's Green Drinks, we look forward to seeing you again in October!

We will be having Environmental Trivia with prizes and an update from City Staff on the status "Community Energy Action Plan". Did you know London has their own Community Energy Action Plan? You can read more about it here.

Green Drinks presents Interactive Trivia - Come test your environmental knowledge about London’s Community Energy Action Plan at our “trivia session” on October 5, 2017 at Joe Kool’s. Fabulous prizes to be awarded. You can participate solo or in a team of up to 3 people. Be sure to bring a smart phone (one per team) to be able to play using an interactive trivia website.

Trivia is going to be short, sweet, and rewarding with amazing prizes and still TONNS of time for networking and meeting new people!

Trivia will look like the following:

  • 2 Minutes Introduction
  • 10 Minutes – Presentation from the City – How are we Progressing with London’s Community Energy Action Plan? Actions, Successes, the Numbers and the Collaborative Path Ahead - Jay Stanford
  • 3 Minutes – Intro to the Trivia Game and how prizes will be awarded
  • 15 Minutes – Trivia Game

The overall goals of London’s Community Energy Action Program are to:

1. Increase the local economic benefit of sustainable energy use through:

  • a. Cost savings from energy conservation and energy efficiency,
  • b. Revenue from local production of clean & green energy products, and
  • c. Job creation associated with product and service providers engaged in these activities.

2. Reduce the environmental impact associated with energy use, through the use of greenhouse gas emission reduction targets consistent with the Province of Ontario’s goals, namely:

  • a. 6 percent reduction in total greenhouse gas emissions from 1990 levels by 2014,
  • b. 15 percent reduction in total greenhouse gas emissions from 1990 levels by 2020, and
  • c. 80 percent reduction in total greenhouse gas emissions from 1990 levels by 2050.


We will also have items up for raffle from our awesome event sponsers. Bring cash to purchase raffle tickets! Please use active or public transportation to attend the event if possible - there are many bus routes available and some bike racks as well.

Green Drinks is an organic, self-organising network of people interested in talking about environmentally related topics. Stay in the loop by checking the London Environmental Network's website.
