Twin Cities Green Drinks year is divided into trimesters. We change
both hosts and venues every four months to turn people on to new ideas
and new faces, as well as great, green, and groovy places to gather. Our
rotation goes as follows...
Time [June-September] > Inside Time
[October-January] > and > The Rest of the Time
speaker and venue info can be found at:

TAKE THE BUS to TCGD venues!
Snow Cancellations: if it looks like a driving hassle > Green
Drinks is canceled for that month.
in 1989 with the idea of information and ideas cross pollination (the
core of o2.org), the Green Drinks forum allows people from all
industries and walks of life to share ideas, and network on a level not
possible through dedicated advocacy groups. Using the idea of common
ground to create a truly organic experience, it allows ideas to spread
more quickly, and more diversely, than the more traditional events
In 2002 a group of employees from Aveda and members of the local chapter of the o2 International Sustainable Design Network (o2umw.org) came
together to launch a forum where people on all places of their
sustainable journey could meet to share ideas, inspirations, and
opportunities. Still going strong, the Twin Cities Green Drinks
continues to provide unique networking, and info-sharing opportunities
for people of all eco-interests.

Twin Cities Green Drinks would be nothing without the continued support
of local Venues and Host Groups. We are grateful for their enthusiastic
help and energy.
