The course was enlightening and helped me hugely to take further steps in my company’s sustainability journey. The course gave me epiphanic moments that truly changed my worldview and priorities. I can highly recommend the course to anyone who is about to take off on a sustainability journey, professionally or privately.

The course was very educational and inspiring and updated my mindset and traditional business education. I was immediately able to put my new skills into practice professionally and am now looking forward to finding solutions for how to produce, sell and consume food in a sustainable way.
