Do you have a project you are working on that might reduce emissions, increase sustainability or just generally be good for the environment? Are you interested in projects that are going on around the region? If the answer is yes then make the time to join in with Sustainability Drinks Byron Shire.
The first event will be launched at the Poinciana cafe in Mullumbimby from 6 to 8pm on Thursday, 13 April by Zero Emissions Byron. Mayor Simon Richardson will provide an official welcome at 6.30pm.
‘The idea is to provide a regular networking opportunity for people interested and involved in all the different projects which are helping to reduce the emissions generated in our region,’ said organiser Sasha Mainsbridge.
‘Each event will be kicked off with a Soap Box. Anyone with a project they’d like to tell people about, has a two to three-minute chance to do that on the Soap Box.’
There are 10 soapbox spots and they will take about a half hour to before people are free to chat and connect continued Sasha.
Soap box spots have already been snapped up by local food production group Future Feeders, a spokesperson for the Laverty’s Gap resurrection project regarding hydroelectricity and RenewFest and a waste avoidance specialist.
Drinking for sustainability (alcohol not required) will take place once a month in different towns throughout the shire.
Anyone wanting to reserve one of the limited Soap Box spots should email [email protected].
Entrance to the event is free, with food and drinks available for purchase.
