SOIL HEALTH - INNOVATE, DEMONSTRATE & COMMUNICATE
8th and 9th of September 2020 in Tulln / Absdorf / Zinsenhof
Soil is the foundation of terrestrial life. Preserving healthy soils that can deliver all services for the global biogeochemical cycles, the functioning of ecosystems and human demands is equally important as combating climate change.
This conference is dedicated to explore the close connection between soil and human health. Based on an assessment of the soils´ health status ("health check and diagnosis" - soil monitoring) we will discuss innovations for sustainable use and protection ("guidelines for healthy life"), and rehabilitation ("vaccination, surgery and cure") of soils, and related aspects of demonstration and communication to stakeholders and the public.
