There are simple codes to follow when setting up a group as they (Green Drinks) wish to insure the groups are inclusive. Regular attendees are encouraged to welcome and introduce themselves to new individuals. All in attendance are encouraged to meet and share some time with new people. This is a wonderful opportunity to debate a topic you may already be familiar with and to learn new views and news on that topic and many others. The meeting I attended meets at a fixed date and venue in the month making it easy to relay to the meeting information to interested parties. This however is left to the discretion of each group.
Green Drinks are Agenda Free. These organizations do not lobby or take any position on an environmental topic. Meetings are not a channel to circulate announcements about environmental issues. Most attendees already receive such information from many other sources. Green Drinks encourages a fun and relaxed atmosphere. Check out a “Green Drinks” near you. Meeting information is accessible at www.greendrinks.org One of the things that I appreciate about this very informal, welcoming, “no-membership required” group is that I could attend such meeting on travels across the country or continent. Think of the possibilities.
