ALL 4 SOIL/SOIL 4 ALL - Bioeconomy for soil regeneration

Soil is a non-renewable resource that is fundamental for the mitigation of climate change: however 60-70% of European soils are not healthy and 25% of land is at risk of desertification in the Mediterranean.

The conference will explore the role of circular bioeconomy as a key tool for soil regeneration, decarbonising the economy and creating value and resources from locally produced waste.

Speakers will connect to a webconference platform and the event will be live streamed. The conference will be held in English.
