Reykjavik, Iceland 28. Sept. 2011
– The first workshop with stakeholders in the Converge Project was held today in Reykjavik, Iceland. Twenty-three individuals from all walks of life attended the full-day workshop, the first of three such meetings in Iceland.
The participants came from many different parts of the food production sector, Innovation Centre, civil society organizations, consulting, government, waste sector as well as consumers and members of the public interested in nutrition and food culture. The focus was on sustainable food production and consumption in Iceland.
The group made some very solid first steps towards a vision for a sustainable food system and a practical implementation plan which the stakeholders will be able to take with them at the end of the project. For more information on the workshops please visit www.convergeproject.org/workshopinfo
