Event description

Description

This event will feature a short guest talk by ACT's Commissioner for Sustainability and Environment Kate Auty, which will occur at approximately 6:00pm.

Kate Auty

Dr Kate Auty is the ACT Commissioner for Sustainability and the Environment. Kate has been a Magistrate, former Commissioner of Environmental Sustainability in Victoria and is a member of the Murray Darling Basin Authority advisory board on social, economic and environmental issues. She is passionate about good science communication and the need to use great infographics and digital technologies to tell sustainability stories. Kate rides her 1980s bike to work.

Green Drinks Canberra is a monthly event for socialising and professional networking, created for those interested in environmental sustainability and eco-efficiency.

Green Drinks is your must-attend monthly hub for meeting other people doing important things, and learning about other events happening around Canberra.

Venue: King O’Malley’s Irish Pub, 131 City Walk, Canberra (meet at the long tables in The Arcade: look for signs with the Green Drinks Canberra logo)

Date rule: the second Tuesday of each month.

RSVP: Not required.

Cost: Free entry, pay for own drinks.

Start time: 5:30 pm until whenever. Arrive at a time that suits you.

Sixty Second Soapbox: At 6:00 pm, we pause the room's freeform conversations for the Sixty Second Soapbox. Each person, if they choose, will have the opportunity to speak for up to 60 seconds (mercilessly enforced!) This is a great way to share information about upcoming events, to find collaborators for projects, or to share interesting news.

Guest talks: Each Green Drinks Canberra event features a guest speaking about their field of expertise. This talk begins shortly after 6:00 pm, and lasts approximately 10 minutes, with time for audience Q&A afterwards.

Mailing list: Join our monthly email newsletter. (We promise we will not spam you).

This is an event for environmentally-minded Canberrans who meet for a monthly drink. An excellent way to:
• meet like-minded people
• make friends and contacts
• learn about interesting projects / organisations from around the Canberra area
• discuss and collaborate on projects
• stumble upon 'eureka' moments

Essentially, the aim is to be a social think-tank with the environment as the common denominator. Green Drinks are agenda-free and non-politically aligned (read more). Individuals from businesses, not-for-profits, government, academia, and community groups welcome, as well as those with personal projects!

Primary contact channel is via our email mailing list. We are also on Facebook, Meetup and Eventbrite.

Green Drinks Canberra: Inclusive. Informal. Freeform. Friendly. Monthly. Networking.
