Food, farming and fisheries,

The main aim of the conference is to draw further attention to soil protection. Currently, regulations on soils are significantly lacking regarding the balance of soil-air-water. Existing EU policies (e.g. agriculture, water, waste, industrial pollution prevention policies) help somewhat in protecting soils, but they do not go far enough towards ensuring the sustainability of European soils.

Therefore, there has been further need for a wide-ranging discussion on the condition of soils in order to ensure their preservation. The conference will consist of presentations and discussions of high-level policymakers, experts in this field together with officials from different international organisations. In addition, there will be a soil related study tour included in the conference agenda.
