  • support and promote informed discussions on problems relating to the landscape, the environment, and related tangible and intangible goods
  • support decision-making and deliberative processes held by communities or public bodies in relation to the management of the environment, landscape, economic and cultural resources typical of the land, and all related tangible and intangible goods
