Newcastle – People, Planet, Pint: Sustainability Meetup

September 7, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

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

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 a drink.

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!

Your Hosts

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.
