What is A Year In Green?
If you're not familiar with Atlanta Green Drinks, it's a free monthly gathering for green industry professionals & those with an interest in sustainability, its purpose simply to provide a venue for like-minded individuals to come together. It's been running in Atlanta since 2005 and is one of 700+ Green Drinks in cities around the world.
We held the first "A Year In Green" in 2011, just to do something a bit more special for December's gathering. It's grown in size & scope, now a collaborative event for the green community that brings together a host of other environmental non-profits, professional organizations & eco-minded businesses for a single, super-sized holiday bash . . . This year's c0-hosts include: Architecture for Humanity Atlanta, CNU Atlanta, Georgia Solar Energy Association, GMIC Atlanta, Green Chamber of the South, GreenLaw, Groundwork Atlanta, Imagine Atlanta, Live Thrive, MillionMile Greenway, Mothers & Others for Clean Air, The Nature Conservancy, Sierra Club & Trees Atlanta.
On the evening of Friday, December 11th, 500+ participants will meet at Ambient + Studio to celebrate our successes of the past year and common goals for a bright green future for the city of Atlanta, all against a backdrop of seasonal entertainment & music, delicious food & drink, and sustainable products & design – a veritable "showcase" of all that's good, local & green!
