Welcome to CBA! This experimental and seriously interactive opening plenary will encourage you to connect with the LLA principles more creatively and personally, perhaps opening up new perspectives and ideas that you had not considered before. Alongside the opportunity to hear engaging speakers, small groups will break the ice to set the stage for a conference rich in learning, experience sharing and interactive discussion. 
One of the speakers in this session is René van Hell, the director for Inclusive Green Growth, Ambassador for Sustainable Development and Arctic Ambassador, at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands, since August 2021
