Eurosite joins People 4 Soil


Soil is a vital, limited, non-renewable and irreplaceable resource: the welfare of current and future generations depends on the health of soils. People 4 Soil is a free and open network of European NGOs, research institutes, farmers associations and environmental groups who want Europe to recognise soil as a common good essential for our lives.

In 2015 Legambiente (an Italian member of the European Environmental Bureau) launched ‘People 4 Soil’, a campaign to promote a European Citizens’ Initiative (ECI) aimed at introducing specific legislation on soil protection in the EU.

Over 200 organisations – including now Eurosite as well – have already joined the network, but in order for the ECI to be successful one million signatures are required. The People 4 Soil initiative is looking for more partners to help spread the petition through newsletters, direct contacts, and social networks.
