GreenBuzz Berlin e.V. – Connecting professionals for sustainability 

Berlin, 16-02-2016

GreenBuzz Berlin e.V. has joined over 2,500 people with its event series Sustainability Drinks, which supports sustainable initiatives, projects and organisations.

Betahaus Café is crowded again! It is Wednesday, 13th January and the 16th Sustainability Drinks event with the topic “Fast Fashion – Are we wearing the earth down?” starts. 250 people listen closely to the experiences of the reciting experts of the fashion industry. In the Café you can talk to experts in the fashion industry and get information regarding production methods of sustainable fashion directly from the designers. One of the most important elements of the events is networking – here you extend your own knowledge, knot to inspiring contacts or meet a co-founder to implement your own sustainable idea.

The event series Sustainability Drinks Berlin is well-known in the sustainability scene. With its monthly hosted events, the organiser GreenBuzz Berlin e.V. promotes the sustainability movement in the German capital. Now it was officially approved as non-profit. Florian Weingarten, President GreenBuzz Berlin: “I am proud that we have received the non-profit status. Now we can pursue our beneficial activities with full commitment.”

How did it all start? “Participating in a Sustainability Drinks event in Sydney, we realized that Berlin was lacking a platform to connect sustainable entrepreneurs and businesses” says Dr. Marco Blumendorf, Vice President GreenBuzz Berlin. Hence, the association started its activities in February 2014 and since then, organized over 20 events with more than 30 speakers (amongst them B Corp, Fairphone, Ecosia, Original Unverpackt, GIZ, Civocracy) and over 2.500 people.

GreenBuzz Berlin aims at building a community of up-to-date and motivated professionals in order to spark new sustainable projects, initiatives or business ideas. As Ulrike Hinz, Board Member GreenBuzz Berlin, summarizes: “We bring people together in order to make the world a better place.”

With a constantly growing team of enthusiastic and committed members, GreenBuzz Berlin e.V. will increase its publications, introduce new partnership and sponsorship models and address an even broader audience with philanthropic actions and new event formats (e.g. Sustainability Panels with exciting podium discussions).

To boost the vision of an active sustainability movement, GreenBuzz Berlin is part of GreenBuzz Global, a platform connecting local initiatives in a worldwide network that offers the possibility to engage in, connect and start cross-border initiatives or projects and to learn from one another. Current chapters exist next to Berlin in Zürich, Stockholm, Edinburgh und Manila. With a guideline, GreenBuzz enables interested groups anywhere in the world with few means and time resources to create an own local chapter.

GreenBuzz Berlin invites everyone warmly to contribute!

If you are interested to start a GreenBuzz Chapter in your city, become a member or want to get more information about us, please get in touch through www.greenbuzzberlin.de.
