Network Meetings and Workshops
Each year, WWF organises network meetings for the Green Office representatives. At the network meetings, matters relating to the environmental programme are considered, issues are addressed and experiences shared.
In addition to the network meetings, smaller workshops may be organised that focus on particular topics.
