Wild Ideas

Wild Ideas is a casual discussion evening where our community comes together to share some wild ideas over food and drink. We come together to talk about environmental issues, social justice, or local initiatives – it’s informal, inclusive and stimulating. Previous topics have included Slow Food, Meaningful Work, Climate Change, Permaculture, and Tiny Homes.

Join us every 3rd Thursday of the month, 5:30-7:30pm at Circle Cafe in Invermere. See the Events page for upcoming topics and speakers.

 

Wild Ideas Invermere is always free!
Food and drinks available for purchase
