Every month people interested in environmental topics meet up at informal sessions known as Green Drinks.

We have a diverse mixture of people from nonprofits, business, academia, government, and just plain interested folk. Come along and you'll be made welcome. We will look after you and introduce you to whoever is there. It's a great way of catching up with people you already know and also for making new contacts. Everyone invites someone else along, so there’s always a different crowd, making Green Drinks an organic, self-organizing network.

These events are very simple and unstructured, but many people have found employment, made friends, developed new ideas, done deals and had moments of serendipity. It's a force for the good and we'd like to help it spread to other cities.

Kalamazoo's Green Drinks is organized through the Southwest Michigan Sustainable Business Forum.
