Newcastle COPPP28 – People, Planet, Pint: Sustainability Meetup

December 7, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join our People Planet Pint (COPPP) on 7th December 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.

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!

Anne-Marie Soulsby: As a child of the 80’s, I’ve always been acutely aware of the fragility of our planet and the impact we have, but also the unique challenges everyone faces with becoming more sustainable. My Award Winning Expertise & Knowledge includes:

  • Climate Literacy Trainer & Sustainability Coach
  • Undergraduate Degree in Environmental Science, Masters in Conservation Biology, Life Coaching Diploma
  • 2 Awards at the Climate Co-Lab, a climate change competition at MIT University
  • Eco Renovator
  • Chair of Climate Action Wansbeck
  • Core Member of Divest Tyne & Wear Pension Fund Campaign Group
  • Former Director of a climate communications NGO in Africa, former IUCN Red List Assessor, former officer for an international fieldwork based research organisation
  • Featured in The Telegraph!

Claire has long been concerned (borderline panicking) about environmental issues and after many years working in the waste industry and the public sector, she decided to forge her own path to connect with people. Venture Zero was established to engage with businesses, local communities and schools on the climate crisis, the link to our mental health and wellbeing and to empower people to understand that small steps add up to make a big difference. Claire delivers workshops/training and works with organisations on their roadmap to Net Zero with the aim of leaving people feeling more positive about the future.
