This report summarises the debate of the conference

‘Why Soil Matters? - A European perspective’ held at

the European Parliament on 18th November 2015 and

hosted by the Greens/EFA political group.

In the framework of the UN Year of Soils, this event

aimed to discuss the links between soils, food security

and climate, and how this interconnectivity is dealt

with at a European level. The conference involved high

level speakers from the academic world and practical

approaches from field actors, working on the ground

to preserve healthy living soils. The event brought a

European perspective to major ongoing global debates,

such as the discussion around sustainable food policies,

agroecology and the Climate Summit (COP21).
