People are the key. And the best way to learn more and make life interesting is to meet more people. And what better way to do that than to have a regular place to chill out, drink and discuss.
And in the green area, there is something called Green Drinks managed by Edwin at Biothinking. Green Drinks is an organic, self-organising network running in 380 cities worldwide.
Australian cities like Melbourne and Sydney have their version of Green Drinks and Adelaide lacked this. Well, not anymore.
I am pleased to announce the launch of Adelaide Green Drinks. This has solely come about from my interest to meet people in this field. Frustrated with not finding any networking event, I decided to start one.
This will be a monthly meeting on the second Tuesday of every month starting July ’08. The venue is being decided but it will be in a easily accessible pub in the CBD. John O’Brien from Australian Cleantech is helping me getting started and his wife Kate is arranging the venue. Thanks Kate and John.
The details are on the Green Drinks website’s Adelaide section. For those interested, there is a Facebook group where you can join, discuss anything or use all the nice facebook features. For those on LinkedIn or MySpace, the groups are coming there too.
I will provide more updates as and when we decide on the venue.
First meeting: 8th July ’08.
Regular meetings : Second Tuesday of the month.
