Green Drinks: Climate Action

When: Wednesday, September 11, 7 pm – 10 pm
Where: Yellowhead Brewery

If you’re anything like us, your concern about the climate crisis has reached an all-time high. We’ve heard the IPCC’s dire warnings that we must act the most in the next 18 months to avoid catastrophic warming. We are smashing temperature records, permafrost is thawing faster than expected, and the waters are rising.

Our first Green Drinks of the 2019 – 2020 season is all about turning your climate anxiety and angst into action. We’ll connect you with the awesome people and groups organizing in Edmonton to solve the climate crisis and create a livable future. Find out what they’re doing, learn how to help, and join the movement!

Featured Guests

  • Melanie Hoffman, Climate Reality Project
  • Erin Armstrong, Extinction Rebellion Edmonton
  • Alison McIntosh, Climate Justice Edmonton

There will be several more organizations to connect with in a volunteering tradeshow! Stay tuned for details as we confirm.

About this Green Drinks season

For the first time ever, Green Drinks has a season-long theme: Climate Emergency. We will explore the many different aspects of the crisis and the just as many ways we can do something about it. Events will touch on everything from politics and policy, to the role cities can play, to economic and energy transition, to dealing with climate despair. Whatever the topic or format, this season’s Green Drinks events will help you connect with other people who care deeply about climate action and want to collaborate, share ideas, and make a real difference.
