    EU Soil Observatory Stakeholders Forum

    Online

    A key element of the European Commission’s EU Soil Observatory (EUSO) is an open, inclusive and dynamic engagement with its diverse stakeholder base. These include:

    • - Relevant Commission services and European agencies;
    • - International Organisations;
    • - Member State representatives (ranging from policymakers to the research community);
    • - Farming associations;
    • - Industry representatives;
    • - NGOs;
    • - Interested citizens.

    The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is organising the first ever EUSO Stakeholders Forum. This three-day event (built on six, focused, half-day sessions) will reflect the challenges facing soil within the various strategies of the Green Deal (e.g. the Soil, Biodiversity and Farm2Fork strategies, Zero Pollution Action Plan) and Horizon Europe’s proposed Mission on Soil Health and Food. In addition to a high-level panel on recent soil-related policy de­velopments, the meeting will establish a series of dedicated Working Groups to address burning scientific and policy questions (e.g. soil monitoring, citizen engagement and in­creased soil literacy, soil pollution, erosion and biodiversity). Participants will be encour­aged to engage in discussions and possibly to contribute to the Working Group.
