Event: Green Drinks Returns on June 25

Every month people who work in the environmental field meet up at informal sessions known as Green Drinks.

With a lively mixture of people from NGOs, academia, government and business, it's a great way of catching up with people you 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-organising 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.

This month at Green Drinks HCMC, guest speaker, Andrew Nguyen Miller, will talk about going beyond materials and energy to live more sustainably in our built world.

About Andrew

Andrew is a self-proclaimed "greener designer" who recently led a cross-cultural design team in a collaborative sustainable product design project called Future Living Studio. His perspective is informed by a blend of Vietnamese and American values and a belief that genuine sustainability can be achieved through cultural goodness rather than focusing on products themselves.

The presentation will be in English with Vietnamese translation.

When: 18.30 – 20:30, Tuesday 25th June 2013 (Presentations begin at 19:00 and will last for 50mins, followed by networking).

Where: Zest Cafe, 5 Ton Duc Thang, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

Green Drinks is now active in 607 cities worldwide! It's free and open to everyone interested in the environment, from CEOs to students, bankers to artists. We all share a common interest so come and meet some new people, spark some fresh ideas, and have some fun.

If you have any questions, please feel to contact greendrinks@green.vn.
