24th Breakfast at Sustainability's

Cities driving integrated water management: the urban water agenda 2030

28 June 2017
Brussels, Belgium

Since early 2016, the Urban Water Agenda 2030 has slowly but surely gained momentum. Initiated by the European Commission to promote city action for more sustainable urban water management, a core group of more than 20 cities is taking the process further.

In the 24th edition of ICLEI’s Breakfast at Sustainability’s (B@S) - taking place at the ICLEI Brussels Office on 28 June 2017 from 9.30 to 12.00 (followed by a light lunch) - representatives of five of these cities will share why they support the Urban Water Agenda 2030 strategy development and why they think cities are crucial to achieving the European Union’s water policy objectives.

The event will start with Karen Dalgaard-Sanning from the Clean Water unit of the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Environment who will give a presentation on sustainable water management at EU level.

This event is coorganised by ICLEI and EUROCITIES in the context of a joint contract with the European Commission for the development of a strategy for the Urban Water Agenda 2030. A consultation process on the agenda is open until 5 July 2017.

To register (free of charge), contact Serena Scotton at by 26 June 2017.
