EUROPEAN CITIZENS’ INITIATIVE PEOPLE4SOIL

p4s-en-fb_04

Soil is one of the most strategic resources of Europe, as it ensures food security, biodiversity conservation and climate change regulation. It’s time to protect the soils of Europe.

Main objectives: Recognize soil as a shared heritage that needs EU level protection, as it provides essential benefits connected to human well-being and environmental resilience; develop a dedicated legally binding framework covering the main soil threats: erosion, sealing, organic matter decline, biodiversity loss and contamination; integrate soil related UN Sustainable Development Goals into EU policies; properly account and reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the farming and forestry sectors.

WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT?

Each passing minute, the soil is assaulted, suffocated, contaminated, exploited, poisoned, mistreated, and depleted. In Europe, there is no longer a specific law that protects the soil

Safeguarding the soil with laws is on of primary ways of protecting people, plants, and animals. Without healthy, alive soil, there is no future. Healthy, alive soil protects us from environmental disasters, from climate change, from poisons all around.

More than 400 associations have joined together as part of the People4Soil [2] coalition which asks the EU for specific regulations to protect the soil, which is as essential to life as water and air.
