Sep 21: Green Drinks virtually visits Korea

Join host Ron Gaydos, GSE Chair, and the Rotary's Group Study Exchange team as they share their travel adventures in in South Korea earlier this year.

The focus of the GSE's journey to Seoul in the Republic of Korea was on was green buildings and sustainable development.  In the face of a rapidly growing economy and population, the ROK proved to be very forward-thinking about resources and the built environment. Your co-hosts this evening, Chelsea Burket, Jenna Cramer, Cat Sheane, Cole Williams, and their team leader Denny Crawford have far more to tell you than time allows tonight. We're figuring out a way to make photos, presentations, and other information available.  Stay tuned on that.

5:30-8:30 at Luke Wholey's Wild Alaskan Grille, 2106 Penn Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15222 (412.904.4509).  Restaurant Website   and   Directions 

If you are interested yourself in participating in a future GSE, please take one of the flyers or get in touch with Ron at

What is Green Drinks? Every month, people who work in the environmental field or have an interest in a greener planet meet up for drinks all around the world at informal sessions known as Green Drinks. We have a lively mixture of people from NGO's, academia, government and business. Come along and you'll be made welcome. Just say,"are you Green?' and we will look after you and introduce you to whoever is there. It's a great way of catching up with people you know and also for making some new contacts. Everyone invites someone else along, so there is always a different crowd, making Green Drinks an organic, self-organizing network.

These events are simple and unstructured.  Make friends, develop new ideas, do deals and forge a new organic future. It's a force for the good and we' like to help it spreading to other cities.  Green Drinks meets on the third Friday of the month.  Put it on your calendar and count on it: Green Drinks is happening every month.
