Founded in November 2007, Green Drinks (Singapore) is a registered non-profit environment-focused society that connects the community, including businesses, activists, academia and government, for knowledge sharing and collaboration opportunities. One way we do this is by organising informal talks every month, over drinks!
Occasionally, we hold discussion panels, documentary screenings and workshops, to further engage the public and participants, and behind the scenes, we work together with our stakeholders to see how the industry can collectively do better. In 2012, we launched our first public campaign – SaferSkin, a public awareness campaign to push for safer skincare and cosmetics in Singapore, which we continue to run.
Singapore is one of more than 660 cities with a Green Drinks presence. 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.
Do come join us at our sessions, which is usually held on the last Thursday of every month (except Christmas). Everyone is welcome, and admission is free! We’d love to meet you!
