||the main benefit to members is the participation in debates and the sharing of experiences, since the topics are carefully chosen for their relevance, topicality, and also because they reflect trends in environmental and sustainability issues. The Committee meetings also provide opportunities for networking and coming together between different sectors, since, in addition to the members present at the meetings, many talks are given by public-sector representatives, promoting contact and debate with differing visions.
