Green Drinks Canberra is a monthly event for socialising and professional networking, created for those interested in environmental sustainability and eco-efficiency.

Green Drinks is your must-attend monthly hub for meeting other people doing important things, and learning about other events happening around Canberra.

This event will feature a guest talk by puppeteer Matthew Armstrong, along with “Real Big Malcolm” and “Real Big Tony”!

Matthew Armstrong is a self-described “travelling street puppet cartoonist“, and is responsible for “Real Big Malcolm” and “Real Big Tony“. Real Big Tony first emerged in July 2014 after Matthew felt compelled to respond to the Abbott/Morrison federal budget. Matthew will speak to Green Drinks Canberra about the evolution of his puppets, the philosophy behind his performances, and the response that he receives from the community.

Matthew’s talk will commence at roughly 6:00 pm.

Venue: King O’Malley’s Irish Pub, 131 City Walk, Canberra (look for the Green Drinks sign)

Date rule: the second Tuesday of each month.

RSVP: Not required.

Cost: free entry, pay for own drinks/food.

Start time: 5:30pm until whenever. Arrive at a time that suits you.

Mailing list: Join the monthly email newsletter. (We promise we will not spam you).

This is an event for environmentally-minded Canberrans who meet for a monthly drink. An excellent way to:
• meet like-minded people
• make friends and contacts
• learn about interesting projects / organisations from around the Canberra area
• discuss and collaborate on projects
• stumble upon ‘eureka’ moments

Essentially, the aim is to be a social think-tank with the environment as the common denominator. Green Drinks are agenda-free and non-politically aligned (read more). Individuals from businesses, not-for-profits, government, academia, and community groups welcome, as well as those with personal projects!

Primary contact channel is via the email mailing list. Be sure to join it! We are also on Facebook and Meetup.
