At the ISWA World Congress on 8 October 2019, the new S.O.S. Soil Initiative was presented to the public and signed by the President of the International Solid Waste Association (ISWA), Mr Antonis Mavropoulos, and Chair of the European Compost Network (ECN), Ms Kristel Vandenbroek.
The initiative, led by ECN and the Italian Compost and Biogas Association (CIC) aims to highlight the importance of soil organic matter to encourage policy makers to develop instruments to move Europe towards implementing sustainable, climate proof soil management practices.
Please find the Manifesto (with signatures) 'Save Organics in Soils' here.
