You surely can. Participation is open to all professionals, private companies, or public organisations that play a substantial role in their communities’ sustainable economy ecosystem, and/or lead the way in business innovation, entrepreneurship and sustainability.

Our meetings are relaxed and friendly, with a broad range of personalities, of all ages, from the business and public communities. We believe you would gain a greater appreciation and understanding of the key issues affecting our environment, encompassing a wide range of issues from climate change to sustainable food manufacture to open urban spaces "Placemaking".
