      EVENT DETAILS
      Think&Drink: Green Decisions in Grand Forks - Recycling

      We’ve all had deep discussions with our friends while we’re out at night—why not add a couple of experts to the mix and really take it up a notch? That’s the idea behind Think & Drink, a happy-hour series that sparks provocative conversations about big ideas.​The Think&Drink invites you to participate in a facilitated public conversation with public intellectuals who have expertise in the subject at hand. The idea isn’t to create consensus but, rather, to foster an open interplay of viewpoints and perspectives. Join us and enjoy guided philosophical discussion and a pint, included in your ticket price. What happens to our recycling in Grand Forks? Do the same rules apply to residential and commercial recyclers? What is sustainable, accessible, and efficient waste management in our community? The UN estimates that the total waste generated globally will reach 4 billion tons by 2050, doubling from the 2 billion tons produced today. With China and other countries less willing to accept recyclables from the U.S., what is our city’s plan to deal with recycling and waste management into the future? Tickets $10. Tickets will be $15 at the door the day of the event. For more information visit: https://www.humanitiesnd.org/td-grand-forks.html
