In Europe, there is no longer a specific law that protects the soil
Safeguarding the soil with laws is the primary way 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 coalition which asks the EU for specific regulations to protect the soil, which is as essential to life as water and air. Save soil with your signature
“PEOPLE4SOIL” IS A FREE AND OPEN NETWORK OF EUROPEAN NGO'S, RESEARCH INSTITUTES, FARMERS ASSOCIATIONS AND ENVIRONMENTAL GROUPS.
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.
We want to put pressure on European institutions to adopt specific legislation on soil protection, fixing principles and rules to be complied by the Member States. We want Europe to recognize soil as a common good essential for our lives and to assume its sustainable management as a primary commitment.
