What happens on a when you mix Boston’s sustainability enthusiasts, cocktails, and free snacks? Boston Green Drinks! Boston Green Drinks is a monthly networking group open to anyone with an interest in green living, clean energy, or just meeting new people. The event, which is held on the last Tuesday of every month, draws a diverse range of professionals from both the private and public sectors. The meetings are informal and encourage people to discuss any and all green-related interests.
Over the past few meetings, I've met folks from The Nature Conservancy, The New England Aquarium, The Consortium for Energy Efficiency, Ahold (the company that owns Stop & Shop), State Street Corporation, National Grid, and many more. We gab about the best ways to communicate the issue of climate change to the public, and about the environmental issues plaguing the U.S. food structure, and a variety of other sustainability-related topics. The conversations are engaging, well-rounded, and always inspire people to sign up for the next month’s meeting of Boston Green Drinks. It is inspiring to go to Boston Green Drinks and hear what other motivated Bostonians are doing to move our city towards sustainability.
