”I thoroughly enjoyed the step-by-step session with the group. It generated a lot of thought and it was interesting to see the different perspectives. ”
”I really enjoyed being able to talk with other practitioners who want to integrate the SDG’s in the strategy of their company. The case study part where we got to learn how to report in a step by step basis was by far the more interesting. ”
