    Thank you Jeff and Xavier for offering us this opportunity. Interesting conference indeed and a wonderful book "Centerpoint now" which covers more broadly the concept of sustainability.

    Thank you for the interesting conference. I did appreciate the diversity of the speakers as I believe change needs to happen at all levels. If we manage to educate consumers about the power that lies in their choices and why they should choose sustainable products, we will see change happen a lot faster. I believe entrepreneurs are key in this education and we should be aware of the efforts they are making to create products that have to compete with the ones from multinationals.
