ICLEI’s 24th edition of B@S on 28 June 2017: Listen why Paris, Copenhagen Stockholm, Oslo and Leeuwarden support the Urban Water Agenda 2030!

Starting from the beginning of last year, the Urban Water Agenda 2030 has slowly, but surely taken speed. Initiated by the European Commission to leverage city action for more sustainable urban water management, a core group of more than 20 cities is now actively engaged in taken 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 light lunch) - representatives of five of these cities will share with urban water sector stakeholders what has brought them to actively support the development of the Urban Water Agenda 2030 strategy development and why they think cities are crucial to achieve 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 and her presentation on “Paving the way for sustainable water management at EU level”.

The B@S 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. Don’t miss the consultation process that is open until 5 July 2017!

Location of event: ICLEI Brussels Office at Avenue de Tervuren, 35 - Brussels (Metro: Merode)
