Green Drinks Manchester and SEEG present a night of Social Science and Sustainability

Friday, November  10th | No.70 (the old Cornerhouse building).

In collaboration with Manchester Met’s Sustainable and Ethical Enterprise Group (SEEG), Green Drinks Manchester present an evening of social science debate and talks surrounding the theme of sustainability.

The evening is titled Making Public Engagement Meaningful: Preparing the Ground for the Manchester Green Summit’ and will feature short presentations regarding the experiences with academics who have worked on engaging communities/public participation as part of their own research work about Sustainability and Climate Change. This will be followed by a panel discussion hosted by Manchester Met’s Chair of Sustainability and Innovation, the results of which will be written up and passed to the organisers/Steering Committee of the Mayors Green Summit with conclusions and recommendations. 

As a Green Drinks event, it will, of course, feature the opportunity to network in the usual informal Green Drinks manner.

SEEG represent a group of researchers and lecturers based at Manchester Metropolitan University who have a passion for sustainability. Details can be found here. Green Drinks Manchester, on the other hand, is an informal networking event for those with an interest in sustainability. 800 take place all over the world each year and this is your Manchester branch. You can find out more here. We’d love to see you at our monthly events that usually take place on the 3rd Thursday of the month at HOME.

If sustainability is one of your passions, and you are curious to see some of the exciting research being conducted by some of the regions most talented social scientists then come along and say hello. We can’t wait to meet you!

Doors open at 6.30 for pre-event networking, drinks and nibbles. The main event runs from 7-9pm. There will be an opportunity for more networking to take place after the event.

What is Green Drinks Manchester

Green Drinks Manchester is a community of passionate individuals interested in sustainability. We bring together people across the spectrum of ‘green’ – including business, academia, the arts, and passionate members of the public. There are 800 Green Drinks events across the planet each month – welcome to the community.

Our primary purpose is to act as a way for the environmentally passionate people of Manchester to come together in a relaxed setting to have fun, however Green Drinks Manchester also acts as a forum for:

  • Collaboration – working together to share ideas, solve problems and contribute to making Greater Manchester a more sustainable city.
  • Career and Personal Development – aggregating local career and project opportunities in one place.
  • Networking –  making new connections, and achieving shared learning through discussion of thought-provoking topics.

Meetings are centred around a short presentation by a keynote speaker followed by a short discussion, networking, and as many drinks as people feel like having. As well as networking to help form a more sustainable Manchester, our team of culture vultures will be scanning the events lists regularly to identify the best of what the city has to offer – from comedy gigs, the arts, movies, or the odd bite to eat.

What’s the cost?

Nothing! Green Drinks Manchester is free to attend, you just need monies to pay for any drinks you consume on the evening.

We hope to see you there, and can’t wait to meet you.
