Asheville Green Drinks is proud to be one of the most consistent events in Asheville, NC. Part of the self-organizing, international, grassroots networking event series, Green Drinks, we connect our local community to environmental consciousness, green endeavors, sustainable media and social justice action.

All over the world people who are interested in environmental issues and topics meet up for a drink and occasionally listen to an expert in environment, ecology and/or social justice. The Green Drinks phenomena is featured in over 639 cities worldwide hosting events featuring conversation, networking and education.

We are lucky to be supported by a wide variety of community members with a range of ideological backgrounds who share a common commitment to ecological stewardship and humanist interests. We rely on Western North Carolina’s leading environmental nonprofits in developing educational and interactive programming. The steering committee is led by Western North Carolina Alliance and our “Partners in Education” include the United Nations Association of WNC, Sierra Club of WNC, the WNC Green Building Council, Just Economics, Transition Asheville and Lenoir-Rhyne University Center for Graduate Studies of Asheville.

Asheville Green Drinks is a great way of catching up with the latest issues in sustainable and social advocacy issues, connecting with people you know and meeting new contacts. Our events are primarily social and educational. We look forward to seeing you soon!
