Green Drinks is back in London this January to ring in the New Year! We will be hosting our next event at the London Brewing Co-operative on Thursday, January 18th from 6:30pm – 9:00pm. The London Environmental Network is once again excited to offer Green Drinks every 2 months in 2018, with the intention of highlighting some of our amazing LEN members at each event.
The feature speaker will be Marianne Griffith, director of the London based organisation Building Better. Building Better is a not-for-profit organisation committed to advocating and implementing sustainable building solutions in residential, commercial and public settings. They hope to empower and enable individuals and communities to implement emission reduction solutions in existing structures, develop new, community run, zero emission facilities, and influence policy making to prioritize sustainable outcomes.
Marianne will share the unique approach Building Better takes to sustainable building, as well as talk about the Chippewa Sustainable Living Project, an exciting partnership with Chief Myeengun of the Chippewas on the Thames First Nations. For more information about Building Better or the Chippewa Sustainable Living Project, visit the Building Better website at www.wearebuildingbetter.com.
New year, new intentions! This month, with our New Years resolutions fresh on our minds, we will be providing an opportunity to share our environmentally focused goals with one another. Come with an intention (or a few!) ready to share on our Green Intentions board. Small changes in our daily lives can make a huge difference on our environment and community. Lets share our intentions, get inspired, and support one another on our 2018 goals! Note cards and pens will be provided, but we encourage you to get creative with recycled items found at home to share your intentions!
Please use public transit, carpool or active transportation to attend the event if possible – there are bike racks available outside the LBC.
