The Melbourne Sustainability Drinks community has been privileged to hear from such an inspiring range of speakers this year that we thought it only right to invite a few back to reflect upon the year gone by.
We’re going to take a look at the idea of ‘preaching to the converted’ and in that context, our four panelists will share their thoughts, feelings and insights into what they have observed in the sustainability space from their unique perspective (local, global, economic, community, personal, social etc) over the year and wrap up with a positive envisioning and framing of future directions and possibilities.
- Dan Atkins, Shaper Group
- Emily Ballantyne-Brodie, Urban Reforestation
- Dean O’Callaghan, The Good Brew Co.
- Charles Kovess, Kovess International, GENI foundation
Wednesday December 5, 6-8pm

Alexi Lynch, Co-founder, The Environmental Jobs Network, spoke about “Environmental Jobs â€“ Uncovering Your Green Collar” at the recent Sustainable Cities Round Table on Sustainable Entrepreneurship and Innovation, 12 August. His topic raised the emergence of new services, products and industries arising from climate change – one of which is the green job services that have been created to address it. The Environmental Jobs Network (EJN) is Australia’s leading online resource for environmental job seekers, professionals and career changers. It offers a comprehensive website where job seekers and employers could share valuable information on environmental organizations, education, careers and jobs.
