Green Drinks: An improvised group exploration of our consumption and implications for change

This month, visiting Professor Jem Bendell explores “What is a green drink?”, an improvised group exploration of our consumption and the implications for change. Alongside Jem, we have Yvonne, a talented illustrator from GoGo Rama, who will draw on a whiteboard as the conversation unfolds between the speaker and the audience.
We hope to see you there!
Date: Oct 28 (Thurs)
Time: 7.30pm
Venue: Italiannies, #01-02, TripleOne Somerset, 111 Somerset Road

About Jem
Since 1995 Dr Bendell promotes responsible business as a consultant, academic and entrep…reneur. At Lifeworth he helps corporations, NGOs and the UN, in over a dozen countries, having lived in eight. He was instrumental to the creation of multi-stakeholder initiatives, including the Marine Stewardship Council and Finance Innovation Lab. 

With over 100 publications on organisational responsibility, he co-authored the first book on sustainability partnerships between business and NGOs in 1997, with his latest The Corporate Responsibility Movement, available from Greenleaf.

His new focus on the luxury sector led to lectures at business and design schools worldwide, and frequent appearances in media on sustainable fashion. Bendell lives in Switzerland, but often works in Asia.

  • About Green Drinks Singapore

    Founded in November 2007, Green Drinks Singapore is one of more than 800 cities with a Green Drinks presence.

  • We are a non-profit environmental movement that connects academia, green businesses, activists, community and government, for knowledge sharing and collaboration opportunities. We do this by organising informal talks every last Thursday of the month, over drinks! Once in a while, we hold discussions, documentary screenings and workshops to further engage the public and participants.
  • Started in 1989 in London, the Green Drinks movement is a self-organising network that is meant to be simple and unstructured. The global site can be found at www.greendrinks.org.
