The Alpine Soils Platform


The soil web platform serves as an information hub for users that seek information about the soils in the Alpine space. Originally developed in the Interreg Alpine Space project Links4Soils (2016-2020), the platform shares the activities of the Alpine Soil Partnership that was established in 2017.

We strongly believe that only together we can manage soils better and set foundations for sustainable development in all sectors. Find out more about the activities of the Alpine Soil Partnership (< link to About us).

Register to our newsletter and get informed about the activities of the Alpine Soil Partnership.

We would like to encourage you to send us information about soil management – best practices in your region, to share the knowledge and to set an example for soil conservation and soil protection in the Alps!



In the end we will conserve only what we love, we will love only what we understand and we will understand only what we are taught.
Bada Dioum, Senegalese environment protection expert on the occasion of the UN Conference on Environment and Development in Rio de Janeiro, 1992


“A nation that destroys its soils destroys itself. ”
― Franklin D. Roosevelt


To forget how to dig the earth and to tend the soil is to forget ourselves.
