Do we have time to reinvent the wheel? With Helena Lindquist | tisdag, 02. juni 2020

Capitalise on existing knowledge and experiences through new methods for international collaboration to accelerate sustainability transition

About this Event

The climate crisis is one of the biggest, most complex and urgent challenges of our time. In May’s Green Drinks we discussed how we can reduce our impact on the environment as citizens, both online and offline. But we also need to work together across the globe on the strategic and detailed levels as well. How does implementing the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals look like? How do you make sure knowledge and valuable experiences don’t get lost across organisations and teams?

I'm excited that Helena Lindquist will be joining us in our June Green Drinks to discuss this. Helena runs Lightswitch, an independent consultancy with extensive experience working with stakeholders across the globe in the public sector, business and the research community to lead and facilitate interactive knowledge transfer in the fields of renewable energy, energy efficiency and climate change mitigation to solve the urgent sustainability challenges facing our world. She will share with us some of her insights and tips, including her adjustment working in international collaborations from physical workshops to being moved online.

This 'New Normal' of working digitally from home looks set to continue over the coming months - perhaps for even as long as the next 12-18 months. What can we learn from our new adjustments? Will we be laying down the foundations of a more sustainable, resilient and equal world? You are of course, very welcome to join in the conversation!

We will be meeting on Zoom - the link to the meeting will be in your ticket once you have registered. You may need to check your spam box!


Green Drinks is an informal social where everyone who is interested in green issues can grab a drink and mingle with like-minded people. We meet on the first Tuesday of every month from 6pm to 9pm.

Stockholm is the 596th city to join the Green Drinks global network, with the first drinks on Tuesday 6 November 2018 at the Scandic Downtown Camper, then at Kalf & Hansen at St Eriksplan in February 2019, and at Openlab since November 2019.
