One of the main activities are the regular lectures, mostly at the Royal Academy of Sciences and Arts of Belgium in Brussels, under the title “Aurelio Peccei Lectures and Dialogues– Enquiries on the Challenges of the 21st Century”. To date, the CoR-EU delivered 99 lectures. They are open to the public, upon prior registration. See under “Events”.

On exceptional academic sessions, with a keynote from authoritative speakers, honorary membership is conferred on distinguished individuals. See names under “Organisation”. From June 2004 to June 2013 these events were chaired by HRH Prince Philippe of Belgium, now King of the Belgians. His successor as Honorary President is Count Herman Van Rompuy, President Emeritus of the European Council, officially installed on 9 September 2015.

With a view to stimulating cross-fertilisation of thoughts, knowledge and expertise among the members of the Club Conversation tables are regularly organised over lunchtime for a limited number of members and guests. They are built around one or a few outsiders, who kick off the debate based on a brief functional presentation, leading to useful output for further thinking and to concrete action. Guests are drawn from EU officials, business leaders, scientists, academics and artists. The group never exceeds 12 to 15 persons in order to ensure effective interactivity and dialogue.

In addition to these midday conversation tables there are more in-depth meetings of a different format: half day meetings starting or ending with a convivial meal, but with the same concept of cross fertilization between members and authoritative outsiders.

Some Dedicated events are organised in collaboration with public partners such as the European Commission, the European Parliament, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) as well as with private partners including the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), Oikos, the Foundation for the Urban Environment(FFUE), GreenFacts, Business & Society, the Fairtrade Advocacy Office
