Green Drinks Leeds - Green 'Dating'
Monday, January 7, 2013 from 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM (GMT)
Leeds, United Kingdom
You may have noticed that the 4th Tuesday of December is the 25th. Since it seems unlikely anyone would turn up to Green Drinks Leeds on Christmas Day, we've moved our December event to early January.
So come join us on Monday 7 January to warm up and get together… our "Green Dating" event aims to help community & environmental groups in Leeds find like-minded groups for collaboration, friendship or maybe even more...
The evening will be about showcasing your group so you can network and get to know about what other groups are doing across Leeds and how we can all work together on events, promotion and work to get grants. Every group will be given a short space of time to highlight what they do, where they do it and what their aims are.
You will also be able to add your group to geographical and conceptual maps as part of the Leeds Mapping Project
PS there won’t actually be dating at the event but you never know who you will meet!
Our special Winter Warmer event will be at Distrikt on Duncan Street, between Briggate and the Corn Exchange. Distrikt opened in 2009 and specialises in locally sourced and foraged food.
As usual, we'll be open from 6pm, with the group networking happening throughout the evening.
On 22 January, we'll be back at The Lounge, when Andy Graham from Leeds City Council will be talking about the Aire Valley Regeneration Area.
