Why Green Drinks?

Green Drinks ( is a global, organic, self-organising network of chapters in over 600 cities around the world. The goal of Green Drinks events is to bring people together over casual conversations focused on the environment, that can lead to long-lasting collaborations or simply friendships. Events are very simple and unstructured, but many people have found employment, made friends, developed new ideas, done deals and had moments of serendipity. It's a force for the good and we'd like to help it spread to other cities.

Green Initiatives, in fact, evolved from Green Drinks that started its Shanghai chapter in January 2009.

Who are Entrepreneurs in Action (EIA)?

A community that brings together entrepreneurial spirits in China. EIA is a hub to reach out to new connections, collaborate with other creative minds, participate and/or run event series, and expand your perspectives and knowledge.
