Platonic Speed Dating
Thursday, September 12th, 5pm -7pm
Want to meet new people who appreciate plants? Come join our platonic speedy meeting activity during this 5a7 social!
This exercise consists of spending 5 minutes talking to a series of strangers. With the goal of breaking down social barriers, this community-building event allows participants to meet others randomly, regardless of age, race, sexuality and all those pesky ISMs that prevent us from talking to one another. Strangers seem a lot less strange and intimidating once you`ve spent 5 minutes talking to them.
This event is open to francophones, anglophones but not telephones.
