The goal of our events is to share information and stimulate discussion about sustainability issues through a variety of activities and events.

Green Drinks Monthly Sustainability Forums

Our forums bring together experts, executives, practitioners, and community members to present, discuss, and learn about critical sustainability issues, solutions, and innovations.

These forums bring to fore pressing environmental concerns, providing a platform for the community to also share recent developments and various initiatives being undertaken in the public and private sectors. Green Drinks Monthly Forums began in January 2009 and have continued without fail ever since, rain or shine.

By May 2016, we had organized 84 consecutive monthly forums in Shanghai covering a broad spectrum of issues and attended by over 10,000 participants.

Environmental Documentary Film Screenings

Films allow us to highlight issues, convey messages and inspire action in ways that no words can.

We hold one film screening every month. As of June 2016, we have held 63 film screenings, touching on issues such as industrial food production, pollution, girl education, biodynamic agriculture, renewable energy, fast fashion and the bottled water industry. We are proud to say that several these film screenings have been in direct collaboration with the filmmakers.

Members of the community pay a small entrance fee for an evening of education, entertainment, and enlightenment with complimentary beverages and snacks. Half of the proceeds are donated to local charities such as Roots and Shoots, Shanghai Sunrise, and NPO-Greenlife.

Sponsored Events

Leveraging on our reach, reputation, and capabilities, we create and conduct various customized sustainability-focused events, workshops, and trainings for corporations, foreign consulates, chambers of commerce, local universities, and other global organizations.

In the recent past we have organized activities for The Dutch Consulate Shanghai, TOMS Shoes, Greenpeace East Asia and the WE ARE WATER Foundation by ROCA, among others.
