Sustainability Community Breakfasts

Metro Vancouver’s Sustainability Community Breakfasts is a series of monthly breakfast meetings that focuses on regional sustainability issues. They provide an opportunity to increase awareness and understanding of current topics, to bring together individuals and organizations interested in sustainability, and to build networks and partnerships. The Sustainability Community Breakfasts were originally introduced to share information and build awareness leading up to the World Urban Forum 3 (WUF3), hosted in Metro Vancouver in June 2006.

The Breakfasts cover a range of topics that appeal to individuals across all sectors: private, public, academic and not-for-profit. They begin at 7:30 am and finish at 9 am, and typically feature one or more presentations that focus on current projects and priorities in the region. Following the breakfast, participants are encouraged to stay for informal networking and discussions about sustainability topics and trends to help expand awareness and engagement with these issues.
