Following the success of the South Coast green breakfast series of the last two years, Blake Lapthorn are teaming up this Spring with Copyrite and Business South and are pleased to be launching their fourth series of green breakfasts.

What is a 'green breakfast'?

The aim of the green breakfast is to facilitate the meeting of a range of people from across the wider community to learn about and discuss the challenges and opportunities presented by climate change and sustainability in an informal but informative atmosphere.

The breakfasts have attracted a diverse audience including academics, professionals, representatives from local government, NGO's, social enterprises, community groups and business people.

How do they work?

Each breakfast starts at 7:30 am for breakfast (including lots of coffee!)
At 8:00 am we welcome the expertise of an external speaker who talks about a climate change and sustainability related topic for about 45 minutes followed by a Q&A session – which can get quite lively!

Time: 7:30am - 9:30am

Cost: No Cost

Location: Blake Lapthorn,
                New Kings Court,
                Chandler's Ford,
                SO53 3LG
