The 11th Breakfast at Sustainability’s (B@S) was entitled Will RIO+20 waves have enough power to revitalise local processes in Europe? and explored EU and local government policies and processes towards RIO+20.The focus was not only on what will happen in the UN-conference, but also what may happen afterwards, particularly regarding local sustainability processes in Europe.
The agenda included discussions on the long-term urban sustainability potential, local governments’ position, and the sustainability level from a local approach. A line-up of high-level speakers that included Nicholas Hanley, representative from the European Commision, and authorities from the Brussels Region Environment Ministry, the Basque Environment Management Agency (IHOBE) and the City of Rotterdam (Netherlands), participated in the event.
