Green Drinks – first Tuesday of every month
hosted by Transition Town Dorchester is now a regular monthly event in Dorchester – the first town in Dorset to host such an event.
This international green social networking phenomenon offers a chance for people who are interested in environmental issues to meet socially for a drink and a chat.
Started in London in 1989, Green Drinks events are held regularly in hundreds of towns and cities worldwide.
Green Drinks will be in Tom Browns pub (a nice friendly & relaxed atmosphere) on High East Street, Dorchester on the first Tuesday of every month (all listed on our events calendar).
Green Drinks is a great way to make new contacts, catch up with friends or just hang out with people who share your values.You don’t have to be an environmental activist to come along – everyone is welcome whatever their commitment to green issues.
Organisers and all attendees actively welcome newcomers – try to commit to meeting new people at every session and not just sticking with people you already know.
There is generally no agenda or theme, Green Drinkers mingle and share insights and provoke and exasparate and inspire each other. There are moments of serendipity and a lot of “oh, if you are interested in X then I must introduce you to that person over there who knows all about it”… People who come to Green Drinks each invite others along by word of mouth, who in turn themselves invite others, etc.
It may be OK to have speakers for 20-30 mins or so or to have a theme for the evening to help stimulate discussion, but the bulk of the evening is freeform and random – (if you would like to speak or do a short presentation please email info(at)transitiontowndorchester(dot)org in advance)
There is a very informal vibe and overall light feel.
Remember the first Tuesday of every month, from 7:30pm…as advertised on our local Events Calendar here
Transition Town Dorchester are officially registered with Green Drinks International and we encourage other Towns and villages throughout Dorset to do the same.
