Connecting People and Soil

A special event as part of the Eurosoil 2021 Geneva Virtual Congress

The Eurosoil 2021 Organising Committee accepted contributions from state, private and civil-society partners under the theme “Connecting People and Soil”.

The “Connecting People and Soil” event inside Eurosoil 2021 organised a series of communications, forums and debates co-organised with stakeholders (including scientists) aimed at identifying and disseminating common strategies associating scientists and actors of the different value chains, in order to preserve and restore the soil resource.

This was a unique opportunity for stakeholders to meet other field experts and actors, introduce their views and questions, collect up-to-date information, develop networks and get involved in the future working groups hosted by ECSSS.

Key Topics for “Connecting People and Soil”

As a first step toward the overall objective: TOWARD A SOIL VOICE FOR 2030, and in order to fine-tune a soil voice for the decade to come, four topics have been identified to structure the whole “Connecting People and Soil” process, culminating in four wrap-up sessions on Friday 27 August 2021.


They are the following:

2. To coordinate the establishment of common road maps to protect soil along the food value chain

3. To acquire common knowledge by rethinking ways of doing research

4. To foster common soil education and awareness
