Aberdeen’s Congress of the People Planet Pints sustainability event

COPPP has already held past events in Edinburgh and comes to Aberdeen on Dec 7

NATIONWIDE sustainability event Congress of the People Planet Pints (COPPP) is coming to Aberdeen on Thursday, December 7. An alternative to COP28, it is part of a nationwide party to empower people to take action in their local community, and highlight the great work that is already going on.

The event, which is hosted by Danielle Dale (The Changineer) and Hazel Robertson (Everyday Impact) is the perfect opportunity for those with an interest in sustainability to meet like-minded people, make connections and friends. It’s a chance to enjoy a drink while sharing ideas and finding inspiration on how they can take action across the local area. Plus, the first 33 people to arrive will be treated to a free drink!

The free-ticket COPPP event is being held in towns and cities across the country to coincide with COP28, when the world leaders gather in Dubai to discuss climate change.

Aberdeen PPP host Danielle Dale from The Changineer said:

“We’re excited to host Aberdeen’s very first People Planet Pint on December 7 to put Aberdeen on the map as part of this growing movement. If you want to connect with others to chat about all things people and planet, come along for a relaxed and fun evening at The Spiritualist. Everyone is welcome and we can’t wait to see you there.”

Aberdeen PPP host Hazel Robertson from Everyday Impact said:

“Having a regular space to meet like-minded people is essential for making connections, sharing ideas and getting inspired by local action. That’s why we’ll be running People Planet Pint evenings monthly, starting with COPPP on December 7. If your business would like to sponsor these events, please get in touch and let’s chat.”

Aberdeen PPP host Kirsten Buck from PTHR said:

“It’s paramount that we normalise conversations about sustainability; from those organisations leading the way to even those falling short. Only by talking and better understanding can we collectively reach Net Zero. And beyond this, operate as businesses in regenerative economies, shaped by business leaders”

PPP founder Adam Bastock said:

“COPPP is about starting broad conversations across all parts of the community, not just for sustainability experts, but anyone who is concerned or curious. There is no agenda, workshops or webinars at our events. It’s simply a chat over some drinks where you can meet others and hear about the work that is happening locally.”

Nationwide Sustainability

The first People, Planet, Pint was an impromptu event at COP26 in Glasgow, with 30 people turning up to talk about sustainability in a friendly and relaxed space. The event has now brought together over 10,000 people at more than 450 events.
