Congress Dinner

Wednesday 1st of July, 18:30

Restaurant Trädgårn

Trädgårn is a restaurant for all kind of different events and people, from families to entire companies. With its accessible location in the hearth of Gothenburg and a capacity up to 1700 guests it is the perfect location for the Congress Dinner.

The Congress Dinner gives you the chance to deepen conversations with the people you have met at WEEC2015 and to have a nice evening in a relaxed atmosphere.


The doors open at 18:30 and the programme starts at 19:00. Before the programme starts it will be possible to buy refreshments in the bar.

In order to bring EE and ESD to a wider public we initiated a recipe contest among the schools of Gothenburg. The recipe contest aimed at providing a concrete example on how it is possible to work with EE and ESD in the schools by interacting between different school subjects with the common objective of creating a recipe which should be at the same time delicious, environmental sustainable, healthy and economic. The winning recipe will be served to you at the Congress Dinner. You can read it here in Swedish, English, Spanish and French.


Please ensure you bring your congress badge with you to gain access at the door. Please note that your registration is binding and only if you indicated that you wish to attend the Congress Dinner during the registration process you are able to attend.
