BSDS 19 – 20 October 2015
the ‘Last stop before Paris’

 

As one of the foremost fora on issues of global sustainability, this top event brings together various Heads of State and Government, opinion leaders, policy makers and internationally renowned delegates of industry and academia to debate on world important issues: climate change, environmental and energy related issues.

Particular focus will be given to the powerful influence that the European Union, as a political and financing sponsor, can have in creating the proper momentum and drive for the needed change towards sustainable development.

BSDS 2015 will take place on 19 and 20 October in Brussels, as the last in the series of the many sustainability conferences that were organized since the Rio + 20 Conference in June 2012 and dedicated as the prelude to COP 21 in Paris in December 2015.
