Breakfast at Sustainability's

The ICLEI Europe Brussels Office organises this series of meetings called Breakfast at Sustainability's (B@S), hosted by local, regional and national governments represented in Brussels. Speakers of the past 30 editions typically included representatives from the European Parliament and the European Commission, with good practices shared by European cities.

B@S takes place multiple times per year and focuses on Europe’s leading, ongoing urban sustainability discussions. With participants and speakers mainly joining from Brussels, B@S is one of ICLEI's most climate friendly and prolific event series.

Highlight event

30th Breakfast at Sustainability's
How School Meals Can Drive Local and Regional Change

9 October 2019, 11:15 - 13:00 – European Committee of the Regions (CoR), Rue Belliard / Belliardstraat 99, 1000 Brussels (Belgium), Room JDE 62

Case studies show that investing €1 in sustainable school meals can bring up to €6 in social return on investment. Given this fact, imagine the impact of sustainable school meals all across Europe!

Discussing school meals enables an exploration of sustainable food procurement, and questions such as: How can sustainable food procurement be linked with strategic policies or climate change actions? And, how can public procurement issues related to purchasing "local & regional food" be overcome?

Join the interactive 30th edition of B@S on 9 October 2019 to engage further on these issues. The session will showcase good practices and discuss stronger support within EU policies such as EU procurement legislation and the CAP reform (food procurement for regional value capturing).

The event will include inspiring speakers from South Tyrol (Italy), Paris (France), Copenhagen (Denmark), the Organic Cities Network Europe, and EU Institutions. It will take place as part of the European Week of Regions and Cities 2019.
