If you are environmentally aware and would like to meet like-minded people in Dorchester, then Green Drinks is for you!
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 now held regularly in hundreds of towns and cities worldwide.
Dorchester’s Green Drinks is in Goldie’s pub – a nice friendly and relaxed atmosphere – on High East Street, Dorchester.
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 invite others along by word of mouth, who in turn themselves invite others, and so on.
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 free-form and random. There is a very informal vibe and overall light feel.
Green Drinks hosted by Transition Town Dorchester is a regular monthly event and is held in Goldie’s, Dorchester on the first Thursday of each month.
