Cool Drinks is a bi-monthly social and learning gathering to connect and inspire individuals interested in sustainability and climate change. The event lasts 1.5-2 hours, taking place on a weekday evening. Typically, invited speakers share information and perspectives about a sustainability or climate change-related topic followed by discussion. Some events feature tours, practical demonstrations or small group facilitated discussions. Following these events, North Shore residents feel inspired to take action on climate change at home and in their community.

Women Bending the Curve on Climate Change
Cool North Shore and SFU’s Faculty of Environment are presenting the film screening of “Women Bending the Curve on Climate Change.”
This documentary film is set in the context of the Paris climate change agreement. It tells the stories of climate change leaders from BC that are working in renewable energy, energy conservation, municipal government, community engagement, sustainable food, finance, and indigenous land stewardship. Their inspiring stories explore how climate science, meaningful action and women’s collaborative leadership intersect to bend the curve on climate change.
