When the COVID pandemic made it impossible for Sustainable San Mateo County to hold in-person gatherings, we began hosting interactive Happy Hours online to bring the community together and discuss sustainability issues. Each hour-long meeting on Zoom begins with guest speakers setting the stage on a current sustainability topic. Participants ask questions and explore solutions during these informal networking sessions. We encourage everyone to bring a green drink to Happy Hours, which are usually held from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.

Among the topics that Happy Hours have focused on are clean energy, regional challenges to biodiversity, a plastic-free future, sustainability in the fashion world, air quality for everyone and green jobs. You can read about past Happy Hours on our blog here.
