Triton College Sustainability Center hosts first Green Drinks event

News Release

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE MARCH 19, 2014

The Triton College Sustainability Center will host their inaugural Green Drinks program from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 2, with guest speaker Tom Stoner, a former energy entrepreneur who authored the book “Small Change, Big Gains: Reflections of an Energy Entrepreneur.”

Stoner will discuss how climate change mitigation is possible and will result in a more prosperous pathway to a sustainable future, as he answers such questions as:

  • Is the very nature of business in conflict with the environment?
  • To address climate change, will the United States have to incur a massive public bailout to transform our energy economy?
  • What are the top three calls to action for environmentally conscious college graduates?

Stoner is also the founder of Project Butterfly (www.projbutterfly.com), a research organization dedicated to finding business solutions to climate change.

The event is free and open to the public. It will take place in Room B-223 of the Student Center on Triton’s main campus in River Grove.

The event will also have a cash bar and hors d’oeuvres. For more information, contact Adrian Fisher at adrianfisher@triton.edu or Alexandra Dragin at alexandradragin@triton.edu.

Green Drinks is an international network that encourages networking opportunities to discuss sustainability. This event is sponsored by the Triton College Sustainability Center and the Green Committee.
