The Student Environment Centre hosts Green Tea Talks, which are weekly, student-driven conversation circles held around a fresh, warm pot of green (and other!) tea. Their aim is to build a community where all perspectives are welcome (and we mean all of them!), and all topics, from simple and safe to complex and possibly controversial, can be explored in a respectful, open manner, fostering solidarity, community and awareness around environmental issues.
Green Tea Talks are held in the Resource Groups Center lounge every Thursday at 12:30pm. Being a casual, open and pressure-free space, conversation can start any time afterwards; due to time constraints and classes, we like to end the event at 1:30pm to give enough time for people to get to where they need to go. A piping hot pot of tea will be served and you can have as much as you want! Snacks are on a week-by-week basis, so there may not always be some, but you can feel free to bring some if you like.
Green Tea Talks are coordinated and facilitated by a SEC volunteer member. If you have any questions concerning Green Tea Talks, you can email her at firstname.lastname@example.org and she should respond within a day.
