The European Mission Soil Week will be an annual event designed as a major European gathering that brings together the European soil community. Researchers, policymakers, farmers, foresters, spatial planners, land owners and managers, businesses and organisations as well as the general interested public will meet to discuss the challenges for healthy soils. The event will be an occasion to communicate and disseminate solutions based on the latest research results and innovation. The European Mission Soil Week will mobilise communities to protect and restore soil health.
This year the event will have particular importance in the context of the European Soil Monitoring Law. The proposal for a directive was launched on 5 July with the aim to ensure healthy soils by 2050 in close connection with the Mission Soil.
The event, locally hosted by INIA-CSIC at the central facilities of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), will take place under the Spanish EU Presidency on 21-23 November 2023 in Madrid. It will also be livestreamed, allowing everyone to get involved.
