European Initiative People4Soil
The European intitiative People4Soil will start a EU-petition and gather 1 million signatures. People4Soil is a free and open network of European NGOs, research institutes, farmers’ associations and environmental conservation groups. Because soils are being exposed to problems all over the world – such as erosion, soil sealing, loss of organic matter, compaction and salinisation – a wide-ranging petition is going to demand that the EU introduces laws for the protection of the soil. We met Tiziano Cattaneo from People4Soil at the BioFach.
