6:00 pmto8:00 pm

Our next Sustainability Drinks event is on Wednesday 2nd February 2011.

Sean Willmore was a Victorian park ranger, now documentary maker, festival director, author and Director of The Thin Green Line, a foundation that supports the families of Park rangers killed, and prevents further ranger deaths, on the frontline of conservation around the world.

The Thin Green Line Foundation’s mission is to share the stories of park rangers from around the world and in doing so support conservation projects and the families of rangers killed, whilst protecting wildlife, in their selfless fight for conservation globally.

Sean will talk about how to stay sane and proactive in the environmental movement based on his experiences with The Thin Green Line, with much expectation, little funding, the challenges of bureaucracy and a constant need for hope. Why should we keep going?

We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday the 2nd February from 6 – 8pm. Please note that it is essential to RSVP every month. Due to the ever increasing popularity of the event, it may not be possible to accommodate people who do not RSVP.  This is not a sponsored event; i.e. you buy your own drinks, as we choose to come together in the spirit of a shared interest.
