NoDa Drinks & Thinks is back for a new season. This month we’ll be featuring two speakers who are innovating new ways to use our old stuff.
James Walker is the founder of Informative Technologies– a start-up dedicated to building a circular economy for unwanted electronics and training young people in Charlotte how to a build and maintain computers. We’ll also be running an eWaste drive to help Mr. Walker’s work with at-risk youth, so bring any old laptops, desktops, tablets, smartphones, and wireless routers you want to recyle. No printers or stand-alone monitors, though, please.
Dr. Brett Tempest is Associate Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at UNC Charlotte interested in sustainable development. Dr. Tempest will be speaking about his work turning coal ash and other industrial by-products into safe and environmentally friendly construction materials.
Not quite “Drunk History,” NoDa Drinks and Thinks is a great way to stretch your thinking muscles in the comfort a neighborhood bar. The event is part of a series to help bring back the lost arts of conversation and dialogue. Salon-style discussions take place in a casual environment and promote creative thoughts and knowledge-sharing. It’s kind of like watching a really cool documentary on TV – only you’re in it. And there’s a bar!
Please join us on September 28 at 6 p.m. at the Evening Muse for a lively discussion about community history and engagement. This event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
