*Green Drinks International is in an environmentally interested social networking group that meets once a month in 707 cities around the world. We have a lively mixture of people from NGOs, academia, government and business. It’s a great way of catching up with people you know and also for making new contacts. These events are very simple and unstructured, but many people have found employment, made friends, developed new ideas, done deals and had moments of serendipity.

The Directorate of Energy and Climate Change at the UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs has asked Abu Dhabi Ecochicks to share their invitation to attend a high-level pre-COP18 women’s majlis:  “Arab women leading the way in energy and climate change” in Dubai on 13 November 2012 from 8:00am-10:30am at the Address Dubai Marina Hotel.

This event will take place just weeks before the international climate change negotiations (COP18) are held in Doha, marking the first time this important event has been hosted in the GCC. The event will highlight the role of women leaders, particularly Arab women, in advancing efforts to address climate change and to promote sustainable development, and what role they might play in a successful COP18.

Please RSVP to at your earliest convenience, as space is limited.

“In this touching and often flat-out-funny film, we follow “everyman” Jeb Berrier, who is admittedly not a tree hugger, as he embarks on a global tour to unravel the complexities of our plastic world. What starts as a film about plastic bags evolves into a wholesale investigation into plastic and its effect on our waterways, oceans, and even our own bodies. We see how our crazy-for-plastic world has finally caught up to us and what we can do about it, Today. Right now. ”
