Each month, some 200 people gather at the area’s hottest, sustainably operated spots for Green Drinks Annapolis.
Drawn by a shared concern over the impacts of Climate Change and a desire to mitigate them, academics and government officials, business owners and nonprofit leaders, staff and volunteers, students, homemakers, artists and everyday people join together for a lively and informal evening of socializing and learning about serious issues while having fun.
Cocktails are available (yes, they are occasionally green) along with local culinary specialties and nonalcoholic beverages. Each gathering is themed, providing current knowledge on everything from driving electric to the effects of rising seas on Annapolis to sustainable building materials and local agriculture.
Nowhere else will you meet more eco-minded people from all areas of Greater Annapolis’ environmental and business communities.
Thirsty for more? Stay tuned as we build our archive of past events.
