November Green Drinks will be taking place on Tuesday, November 27th, from 6:00-8:00pm, at The Wave at Western University in the UCC Building. This event is hosted in collaboration with the Masters of Environment and Sustainability (MES) program and will feature a talk titled "Sustainability Initiatives at Western: From Bee City to O-Week" by MES graduates Laura Pendlebury and Rachel Brown.
Green Drinks is an organic, self-organising network of people interested in talking about environmentally related topics. We hope you can join us to chat with like-minded neighbours, learn more about what Western University is doing to create a ‘greener’ campus, and connect with other people interested in growing a healthier, more sustainable city!
About the Masters of Environment and Sustainability (MES) Program:
The MES program is designed to focus and develop intellectual and practical skills for the application and advancement of environmental sciences and sustainability in scientific, business, industrial and policy sectors. It is a fast-paced, dynamic, course-based interdisciplinary program created for students interested in equipping themselves with the skills and experience needed to compete for an entry-level position as an environmental professional with a potential for leadership in industry, a non-governmental organization, or a government department. Students in the program will have sufficient formal education at the undergraduate and possibly graduate level and/or work experience. With this depth of knowledge in place, they will seek to better understand the interdisciplinary and complex nature of environmental problems through coursework, group work, professional development workshops and practical work experiences.
Like every Green Drinks, we encourage attendees to use active transportation.
