Leeds – People, Planet, Pint: Sustainability Meetup

October 26, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Come and meet others interested in the Net Zero, Bcorp and Environmental space!

Pop down to your local People Planet Pint meetup to find more about what’s going on locally with sustainability and how you can get involved.

No pitches, powerpoints or panels. Just People, Planet, Pint/s.

Your local meetup is a great place to start your journey or continue learning, and meet diverse people to chat about life and how we can sustain it. Every job is a climate job, so come along and learn about how you can take action, as well as what is going on locally.

We welcome everyone, regardless of their experience or background. People Planet Pint is a space where everyone can feel comfortable learning about sustainability and sharing their ideas.

Afterall, creating a sustainable future requires connected communities. And what better way to bring everyone together than over a drink?

Prefer a Pastry to a Pint? Head along to ‘People Planet Pastry’! Equally relaxed and welcoming, they run during the day and offer an informal way to learn about what is going on locally in sustainability.

PPP Testimonials

Some of the lovely things people have said about People Planet Pint:

“I went to my first People Planet Pint networking meetup this week. I was a bit nervous but I told myself that everyone there would be friendly and it would be alright. And it was! Plus it was on a boat, so that’s fun.”

“You might come away like I did: feeling a little more hopeful about the future, connected to a group of like-minded people, excited to try out some great book recommendations, better informed about what’s going on and what solutions are out there”

“A lovely evening and great to learn about everything from defence sustainability to worms and wedding cakes!”

“I love that People Planet Pint brings together people with a diverse range of skills, interests, and thoughts – all threaded together by a desire to do more good.”

“Fantastic opportunity to chat with a myriad of interesting people. Can’t wait till the next one!”
