|Thirsty for ideas?
Green Drinks is an international concept. In hundreds of cities around the world, in brings people together once every month. They're people with a professional involvement in the environment, and people with a personal interest, and people who just fancy a drink or two - if possible locally produced - with good company and stimulating conversation.
Prishtina is now one of those world cities. We've started holding Green Drinks here on the second Thursday of every month. We have a lively mixture of people from NGOs, academia, government and business. Come along and you'll be made welcome. It's a great way of catching up with people you know and also for making new contacts.
And now we've started Green Drinks in Tirana too! - on the last Thursday of every month, in E Pershtatshme. So you can come to both.
At each event, we have a short presentation from one or two of our guests - just a couple of informal minutes on what they're doing and why they care about it. Otherwise the evenings are easy and unstructured, but people seem to meet new people, and conversations breed concepts (two new acquaintances are now planning a demonstration farm together!). Old friends tend to bring new friends, and Green Drinks have proved to be a fertile force for ideas, for partnerships, and for relaxed and enjoyable evenings.
You can read all about it on the facebook pages for Prishtina and Tirana, of course.
