► About us

The Club of Rome EU-Chapter (CoR-EU) aims to build bridges between the institutions of the European Union, EU Member State constituencies, EU citizens and the Club of Rome as a leading think tank at world level. Its mission is to act as a catalyst for reflection on sustainable development in Europe and on a global level. The CoR-EU is an independent non-profit association, registered under Belgian law, affiliated with the Club of Rome.

Our aims are:

  • To identify the most crucial sustainability problems facing European society, to analyse them in the global context and to reflect on alternative future solutions for a sustainable European society, including the elaboration of specific scenarios for the future of the European continent.
  • To initiate and facilitate cutting-edge research, in which the major theme is the development of groundbreaking concepts for globally sustainable development and for the specific contributions that Europe can make.
  • To organise a societal discourse on the implementation of European policies for sustainable development in a global context, involving key public authorities, private sector decision-makers, the media and the general public.

Full members are individuals with high ethical standards and professional ability, with well-established reputations in their activities, acting in a personal capacity. They subscribe to the goals of the association and are active in the Brussels region – whether with the European institutions, with Brussels-based international organisations or in Belgian society. They are nominated for election to the Board of Directors by two patrons, both Full members. They pay an annual fee and have voting rights at the General Meeting.

Associate members are individuals who are interested in the association’s work and willing to support it. They can apply spontaneously or be nominated by a Full member. After a probation period they can be elected Full member. They are admitted by the Board of Directors and pay an annual fee of 60 € (30 € for students or jobless).
