Presentations of the ECN webinar ‘Save Organics in Soil’ available

The European Compost Network celebrates the World Soil Day with a presentation on the EU Strategy on Soil, a short lecture on the benefits of compost application over long time and with a relevant panel debate on the way forward to save organics in soil.

The European Compost Network thanks the panelists and speakers who accepted our invitation, namely Alberto Confalonieri (CIC Italy), Annabelle Williams (Rise Foundation), Annemie Elsen (BDB), Célia Neyssens (EEB), Mirco Barbero (European Commission) and Stijn Martens (DBD).

The power point presentation on the soil strategy is available at this link.

The power point presentation on the long field compost trial can be accessed here,

The recording of Ms Elsen’s lecture can be watched here.

The European Commission will prepare an impact assessment next year to support a legislative proposal on soil health to be presented in 2023. The Soil Health Law will likely set a binding target to reduce leakage of nutrients from soil of 50% by 2030 and put forward quantitative goals to achieve by 2050.
