Birmingham – People, Planet, Pint: Sustainability Meetup
September 14 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Whether you’re a sustainability professional, small business owner, local council/government worker, student, consultant, looking to switch careers, or anything else besides, come down and meet others interested in sustainability.
No agenda, workshops or webinars. Just chat over some drinks.
Started in Glasgow during COP26, this relaxed event brings together those with a shared passion for sustainability in all its forms.
We meet monthly to chat about what’s going on in the Net Zero / Sustainability space, “network” and meet others who are interested in the field.
Let’s see where the conversation, and night, takes us!
Chat with other industry experts and newbies, and talk directly to business owners and staff facing the challenges you’re trying to solve.
Find others who can collaborate and help you on your journey and have fun doing so!
