Event Details

We are pleased to announce our 2nd of July speaker will be Shelly Meagher, CEO of Do It On The Roof. Do it on the Roof works with providing project management and design help with green roofs and walls.

Do it on the Roof works on bringing plant diversity and permaculture to the fore of green roofs in Australia and to grow beautiful natural environments in our cities and suburbs’ rooftop landscapes. 

This new business in the Melbourne scene started life as a campaign for a public green roof in our city. After receiving lots of support from the community, councils and businesses in response to its workshops at the Sustainable Living Festival, campaigning at Melbourne Open House and a living hats parade in 2012, Do it on the Roof decided to transform into a business. 

Today, they provide advice, design and project management in green roofs and green walls.

They've been greatly helped by the many people along the way. In 2012 Do it on the Roof’s CEO Shelley Meagher was awarded an Asia Pacific Creative Innovation scholarship as an emerging leader in the green roof sector. It was pitching Do it on the Roof to the audience of 1000 business people at the Creative Innovation conference that provoked the responses which gave her the impetus to grow the campaign into a business. 

Winner of an Awesome Foundation grant for Do it on the Roof and a George Alexander Foundation Fellow at Melbourne’s Centre for Sustainable Leadership, as a former Oxford University lecturer in English Literature and consultant in strategy and communication, Shelley enjoys interacting with a range of industries and sectors. Shelley loves being on roofs and she loves solving problems by using green roof technology and innovative horticulture.

Sustainability Drinks Australia

Sustainability Drinks emerged with a casual get together of ten people and now, 7 years on, offers an environment which nurtures and fosters the sharing of sustainability success stories and hosts thousands of people each month across Australia.


The events run from 6-8pm on a select day of every month and a speaker presents for 10 minutes at 7pm.


The Sustainability Drinks belief is that through the sharing of ideas, and stories of success, we can help create the change that we want to see in this world.


These events provide an opportunity to meet other people interested in creating a more sustainable world, exchange ideas and hear different perspectives about the social and environmental challenges we face. Attendees meet a wide range of passionate people who are interested in making a positive difference.


At Sustainability Drinks you buy your own drinks (we provide some complimentary nibbles) and the atmosphere enables people to introduce themselves and feel comfortable with meeting new people and exchanging ideas. We encourage people to join us and invite friends and colleagues who share the same values.


An open invitation is extended to all who are “passionate about sustainability” to come and mingle with like minded people and listen to a speaker share their sustainability story.

When you register to attend, please share with your social networks and encourage other interested friends and colleagues to join us for a great evening.
