Edinburgh COPPP28 – People, Planet, Pint: Sustainability Meetup

November 30, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Join our People Planet Pint (COPPP) to find hope, learn what’s going on in your local community, get involved & take action!


People, Planet, Pint has always been about bringing people together to share what is going on in the local community, and ultimately, give hope that things are indeed happening.

Edinburgh will kick off the COPPP events on Thursday 30th November

On the 7th of December this year, we are planning a unified alternative COP28 event, with PPP’s all over the country at the same time, to give those who may be tired of the relentless news cycle somewhere to come and feel heard, and learn about local action they can get involved with.

You’re invited to join us at the “Congress of the People Planet Pints”, or “COPPP28”.

If you’re curious about climate and want to learn more about what you can do individually or through your work, join others at COPPP28 to find out more about what’s happening in your area and how you can get involved.

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.

Let’s see where the conversation, and night, takes us!

Find others who can collaborate and help you on your journey and have fun doing so!
