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. For more information, or if you are a city interested in hosting a strategically visible B@S through your representations, contact:

Highlight event

35th Breakfast at Sustainability's
Cultural and Natural Heritage for regional Smart Specialisation Strategies (RIS3)

17 November 2020, 09:30 - 12:00 (online)

What is Smart Specialisation and how does it contribute to regional development in Europe? What is the status of Research and Innovation Smart Specialisation Strategies (RIS3) and to what extent are they integrating cultural and natural resources? How can the cultural and natural heritage contribute to rural regeneration?

The 35th Breakfast at Sustainability’s brings together representatives of EU institutions and cultural organisations, actors of rural change, researchers and regional officers, to discuss the unexplored nexus between Smart Specialisation, Cultural and Natural Heritage and Rural Regeneration. The event is being hosted online by ICLEI Europe in the framework of RURITAGE, a Horizon2020 project that turns rural areas into laboratories to demonstrate Cultural and Natural Heritage as an engine of regeneration.

Venue: Zoom webinar.
