The Region of Murcia, together with ERRIN, the HuMUS project and with the support of the EU Spanish Presidency, organised the EU Soil Day. The event took place on 6 November at the EU Committee of the Regions in Brussels, Belgium.
The event has been an opportunity to have an overview of the EU Soil agenda, both from the policy and projects' point of view and with a specific territorial approach.
ERRIN members shared good regional and local governance models addressing the EU Healthy Soils challenge from an ecosystem perspective, while the HuMUS project presented the Cascade funding call for local authorities to address the soil challenges through participatory processes.
Additionally, various representatives from the Directorate-General for Agriculture and Rural Development (DG AGRI), DG Environment (ENV), and DG Climate Action (CLIMA) were present at the event. CINEA also participated in presenting an overview of the LIFE Programme during the morning session “EU instruments and support opportunities ahead: an overview” starting at 11:15.
LIFE AGRESTIC, one of the leading projects in the field of soil conservation, was present at 14:45 during the session titled “Soil challenge: Carbon farming”.
