(7 September 2017) – The deadline for the People4Soil petition to get European institutions to adopt specific legislation on soil protection is fast approaching. The last day of signature gathering is Tuesday 12th September.
People4 Soil is a free and open network of European NGOs, research institutes, farmers associations and environmental groups:
‘We want Europe to recognize soil as a common good essential for our lives and to assume its sustainable management as a primary commitment.
‘We are very worried about the increasing degradation of soils both in the EU and at global level: erosion, sealing, loss of organic matter, compaction, salinisation, landslides and contamination have negative impacts on human health, food security, natural ecosystems, biodiversity and climate, as well as on our economy.’
Please sign the petition please here.
