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.
