Then discover how we can transform the way we think and act for a greener tomorrow by joining Green Drinks Manchester on the 10th November.
Manchester’s Mayor, Andy Burnham was elected around a whole slew of environmental promises including more bike lanes, fewer cars and a carbon-neutral city.
“A Greener, Greater Manchester!” were his words when he gave Stockport council chief Alex Ganotis the job of creating a world-leading green city region.
Ideas are great, but politics and real change can sometimes seem a bit more distant. Let’s face it, how many times do you actually get the chance to have your voice heard and make a difference?
This is where Green Drinks Manchester steps into the fray, with an innovative event within the 2017 ESRC Festival of Science and experts from Manchester Metropolitan University’s Sustainable and Ethical Enterprise Group.
Long words and complex ideas are not the call of the day though. Green Drinks Manchester has been set up as a regular (and very friendly!) monthly networking group for Mancunians from all walks of life; whether that’s business, sustainability or local community.
This exciting event welcomes anyone with a passion for all things green and invites you to share your opinions and ideas. Alongside talks and discussions you’ll have a chance to speed date, sorry speed network(!) with experts from across the field of sustainability. To help smooth those speed dating nerves we’ll be offering some free, but well-earned, refreshments.
Social science will be core of the evening as we drill down into what influences our choices and behaviour. How can we inspire people from within Manchester to make the lifestyle changes we need to create the greener future that we want?
The evening will be an opportunity to put your ideas forward as the outcomes from the panel discussion will be written up and passed to the organisers of the Mayor’s Green Summit with conclusions and recommendations for them to consider.
