EnviroMingles hosted by the Center for the Environment

Upcoming EnviroMingles

Currently there are no events.
Each of the Center for the Environment's EnviroMingles have brought over 100 people together to network and build relationships. “We had a vast array of different organizations and individuals at the event who would like to partner with the Center on everything from clean air and a virtual farmers’ market to healthy food and green design,” says John Wear, the Center’s executive director.
City leaders and representatives from Castle & Cooke, the Research Campus, and the Chamber of Commerce mingled with business owners and staff from the Center for the Environment. Mothers who have a keen interest in buying local produce for their families talked to bankers who know that dirty air has economic implications. Doctors who treat people with respiratory diseases talked to business people who are working to make their companies energy-efficient.

“We wanted to bring together all the people who have worked as volunteers, who have given their time and money to support the Center’s activities,” said Executive Director John Wear. “We also wanted to bring together those who might want to learn more about our work.

“People shared their ideas with us and learned more about the Center,” Wear said. “And I think everybody had a really good time getting to know others who share common values.”
