As part of the Green-days-program in the University of Iceland, there will be a meeting of green grass-roots in the Nordic house on friday, 6th of march at six. Charlotte Ólöf Jónsdóttir Ferrier is the organiser of those first green drinks in Iceland and she explains this important net-work phenomenon for nattura.info :
Green Drinks is an international, informal networking event where environmentally minded people can connect over drinks. Started in London in 1989, it is now active in 448 cities worldwide; from Johannesburg to Manila, Hyderabad to Istanbul. At Green Drinks you will find an interesting mixture of people from academia, NGOs, government and businesses. Other cities have found the event a catalyst for connectivity, community, collaboration and change in the environmental sector. Although Green Drinks is an organic, self-organising network, many people have found employment, made connections and friends, and developed new ideas. March 6th 2009 will be Reykjavík’s first Green Drinks. Norænna Húsið will host the event at 18.00 and will have a selection of organic wine and beer for sale. Please check Reykjavík’s page on www.greendrinks.org for details on future events.
