Sustainability Drinks – Transforming our World!? The Sustainable Development Goals

March 9, 2017 @ 8:00 PM - 11:00 PM

On 25 September 2015, the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development was adopted at the UN summit in New York. It takes the form of a pact on the world’s future and is intended to help enable all people in the world to live a life of dignity. The 17 development goals link the principle of sustainability with economic, ecological and social development. Thus, a perfect match for GreenBuzz Berlin and its´ network.


The event sheds a light on how the global agenda addresses all countries in the international community, what it means for German politics and how everybody needs to work together to ensure that there can be sustainable development for all. For the first time ever, poverty reduction and sustainability have been united in a single agenda.


Come and join us for interesting insights on sustainable politics from a global, national and local perspective.

Insights are given by

SoLaWi Waldgarten (CSA)

SoLaWi Waldgarten is a community-supported agriculture project with a farmer in Brandenburg and around 90 members in Berlin and Potsdam. Members get vegetables, fruits and other groceries once a week which they can pick up at designated pick-up points in Friedrichshain, Kreuzberg and Potsdam. Depending on the time of year the amount is more than enough for 1-2 people. The farmer produces only to a high quality (Demeter certified) and applies sustainable methods to land and plants like soil conservation and permaculture. With the CSA model the farmer gets a fixed and fair price. A few times a year members go out to the farm and help planting and harvesting, which is a lot of fun and a great experience.

Join our community, get delicious food and even help to produce it yourself! There are free places for the new season starting in May.

On LoveWaves conscious citizens and businesses focussed on sustainability form an alliance for a fair and green future. We don't wait for states and take matters in our own hands to turn more and more advertising budgets into donations to fight poverty, to protect the environment and to serve public good. At the same time we make innovative solutions more visible so that they become more known and will be copied more often locally. LoveWaves hasn't launched yet but we built a private Beta that is to 95% ready to be used (please don't forward the URL, thank you!).
