Sustainability Community Breakfast - 7:30a.m. – 9:00a.m.

Metro Vancouver’s Sustainability Community Breakfasts is a series of monthly breakfast meetings that support the Sustainable Region Initiative. They provide an opportunity to build networks and partnerships, to increase awareness and understanding of the opportunities and challenges related to sustainability, and to bring together individuals and organizations interested in the sustainability of the region. Each breakfast typically features one or more presentations about sustainability initiatives, as well as updates about on-going projects.

The Sustainability Community Breakfasts were originally introduced to share information and build awareness leading up to the World Urban Forum 3 (WUF3) in June of 2006; today, as interest in enhancing the sustainability of our Region grows, the breakfasts appeal to a growing number of individuals in the private, public, academic and not-for-profit sectors that are interested in networking and keep abreast of latest developments.

Each breakfast begins at 7:30 a.m. and finishes at 9:00 a.m. Following the breakfast, participants are encouraged to actively engage in informal networking and discussions of sustainability topics and trends to help expand awareness of those issues.
