Sustainability for Breakfast
Sustainability for Breakfast is a monthly gathering of Calgary’s sustainability champions. Approximately 100 people from the public, private and non-profit sectors meet for breakfast, networking, and to share information and best practices in support of a more vibrant and resilient city. We meet on the last Friday of each month from 7:30-9:00 am at a different venue to discuss a different theme. Each event links directly to the imagineCALGARY targets. If your organization has a story to share or if you are looking to connect with like-minds we invite you to register at http://www.meetup.com/Calgary-Sustainability-for-Breakfast-Network/
