Green Drinks Calgary

January 20, 2010 (All day)

Green Drinks Calgary is an open-format monthly event for those interested in the environment to network and socialize. This year, good conversations are now matched with good food and drink, courtesy of our new venue, The District.

The District is a new gastro pub located in Calgary's design district that sources locally for much of their food or drink. The District will also be providing a limited run of menu samples, a special gift card for all who attend & even a door prize to be won.

We have also paired good food and drink with good people as we feature local people doing good for the environment in Calgary.

In Calgary, we have now been able to average over 75 people per event over 2009.  In December, we had 190 attend our Holiday Party with YEP.   

The "eco-celebrities" for this month are:

  • Emmy Stuebing of the Alberta Emerald Foundation will be on hand to encourage people to nominate themselves or others for the Alberta Emerald Awards.
  • Gael Blackhall of Calgary Community Gardens Resources Network 
  • Alla Guelber of Alberta Acts on Climate Change
  • Greg Powell of Pembina Institute
  • David Crowe of Alberta Greens
  • Brenna Atnikov of Thrive Calgary
  • Adrian Buckley of Big Sky Permaculture
  • Chris Turner, Author of "The Geography of Hope"

120 people have already confirmed for the event on January 19th.
