Calling all environmental enthusiasts! The London Environmental Network will be hosting our next Green Drinks at Storm Stayed Brewing Company on Wednesday May 2nd, from 6:00-9:00pm.
Topic: Canadians care about the natural environment, but we don't always see politicians getting elected that reflect those values. GreenPAC is working to address that challenge.
GreenPAC has identified strong, winnable environmental candidates from all major parties running in the upcoming Ontario election. Then they created a Candidate Matching Tool so you can find the candidate that shares your environmental and political values.
This month's featured speaker is Sabrina Bowman. Sabrina graduated from Environmental Studies from the University of Waterloo and has spent over a decade working in the not-for-profit sector on environment, politics, and international health in Ottawa, San Francisco, and Toronto. She started with GreenPAC in the fall of 2015 and was named Executive Director in December 2016.
Sabrina is a trainer at the Institute for Change Leaders and she co-organized the 2014 and 2017 Canroots organizing conferences in Toronto. Sabrina volunteers at a do-it-yourself bike shop and has sat on several boards. In her spare time, she enjoys swing dancing, getting around by bike, and hiking and swimming at the family cottage near Algonquin Park.
We hope you can join us to chat with like-minded neighbours, learn more about such an incredible environmental organization, and connect with other people interested in growing a healthier, more sustainable city!
There is a $5 charge to attend Green Drinks for all working professionals. The proceeds of this fee will go towards the London Environmental Network so we can continue to provide ever-evolving opportunities for networking, collaboration, training, and empowerment for both LEN member, as well as for general community members with a passion for environmentalism, sustainability, and positive action. Green Drinks remains free for students and unwaged.
