When a community comes together, we can create powerful change. Over the past 10 years, the Green Drinks NYC community has grown by leaps and bounds and worked together to create global positive change. In this month's SPARK* event, we'll be joined by community and local professionals for a compelling panel on how we can make sustainable global change by sticking together. Global change begins when a community gathers together to start a movement in their own neighborhoods. Join us for an evening you won't soon forget!

Shop Your Values Week is a city-wide “do good” event created by a collaboration of local non-profits, community organizers, small business groups and business improvement districts – all set out to create support for ethical, local, and sustainable economies in NYC.  Its efforts have led to the establishment of the$20k Shop Your Values Week Bard MBA in Sustainability Scholarship.
