Sustainable Soils Alliance Launch and Call to Action!
The event report for the October launch of the Sustainable Soils Alliance (SSA) is now available to read on the their website (see here).
It contains their eight-point Call to Action, an overview of the main priority areas for government and stakeholder intervention needed to reverse the crisis in our soils and restore them to health within one generation – from incentives and regulation to education, training, monitoring and evaluation.
The Sustainable Soils Alliance will now be turning their attention to the government’s 25 Year Plan to Improve the Environment, and on March 13 they will be holding a conference hosted by Rebecca Pow MP in the House of Commons to discuss the strategic implications, what the Environment Plan means for our soils and the steps needed to ensure that soils – alongside air and water – get the attention they need and deserve.
In the meantime, if you would be interested in learning more about the SSA or collaborating with them, please take a look at their website here.
