Green Drinks incorporates all three pillars of sustainability: a healthy environment, economic vitality, and social equity. Topics and formats encompass a variety of culturally-relevant celebrations, book clubs, speaker series, videos highlighting local businesses, and the original networking-style event with business hosts. While the format and focus of Green Drinks has shifted over the past few years, the purpose remains the same: to bring people together to learn, discuss, and advance a sustainable future for everyone in Central Oregon.
Green Drinks events are free to attend but we welcome a donation of any amount which will help cover the cost of hiring a diverse lineup of speakers and hosting the event. With your donation, you join a network of members who share your value of local sustainability. Thank you!
March Green Drinks | Dream Boldly: The Grand AdvenChair
Friday, March 22, 5-7pm at Central Oregon Community College - Wille Hall
In partnership with Outback Film, The Onward Project, and COCC, we’re honored to present a debut showing of Dream Boldly: The Grand AdvenChair. This inspiring film features the story of Bend adventurer, entrepreneur, and disability advocate Geoff Babb.
About the film: “A survivor of two strokes takes years to perfect an all-terrain human-powered wheelchair, culminating in a rigorous 4-day expedition down and back out of the Grand Canyon, with a ripple effect on others from its creation—access to nature previously out of reach. Sometimes one bold dream can change the world for many.”
