Vancouver, British Columbia

The Vancouver Skyline and Green BBQ Celebration is the next generation of socializing among people who value the environment and are interested in taking care of it. One of the organizers is Green Drinks, a social group that’s had steady growth in its monthly Vancouver gatherings of “anyone who’s interested in green.” The Green BBQ is the super-sized version of this, with more than 500 people expected at Jericho Park on July 24.

This is Green BBQ’s third year, and it’s the first time organizers have publicized it—with SharedVISION as the media sponsor. Ethical Funds Company stepped forward to underwrite the event as Presenting Sponsor, and Choices Markets is supplying food. People who turn out for these events are an intriguing mix of all ages, backgrounds, and groups—small business, big business, not-for-profits, academia, government, self-employed, volunteers, students, concerned citizens... and everything in between.
