Joining Forces for Soil Protection in the EU’s Green Deal – 5 March – Online

Friday, 5 March, 10:30-12:30 (CET)


The upcoming Soil Strategy is an opportunity to put soil back on the agenda of the European debate. The official consultation launched by the European Commission is open. Until 27 April we can participate and make ourselves bearers of a strong and clear signal of expectations from the civil society.

What should we expect from the EU’s thematic strategy? What priorities do we put at the center?
Which actions can we take and with what tools can we feed the discussion in our country?
We’ll share our point of view for a common positioning.
