Soil is a vital, limited, non-renewable and irreplaceable resource: the welfare of current and future generations depends on the health of soils. People 4 Soil is a free and open network of European NGOs, research institutes, farmers associations and environmental groups. We want Europe to recognize soil as a common good essential for our lives.
