Here is what people have to say about the first workshop:

"I appreciated participating in the CORPUS Workshop in Vienna because of the new people I got to know, the discussions with scientists, the new ideas, the different methods that were used to activate people, and the background information. I am looking forward to the next workshop and I hope that even more policy makers will be there."

"It is very important to exchange best practices and best science results on sustainable food between research people and policy makers in Europe."
Mr. Joost de Jong, Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs, Agriculture and Innovation

"The group exercises were very effective in learning about national approaches to sustainable consumption policies. The CORPUS platform provides access to a great network and knowledge pool in the area of sustainable consumption."
