The urgency to save soil and their fertility requires action, which can create networks and requires responsibility on behalf of every individual and civil society organizations no matter what they specifically work for. We already have associations taking care of the environment and society: so why should we ask for individual effort and initiatives?
Associations are strong on a local level, but are often isolated when taking action. Although verified and successful, their solutions are often not shared among similar communities, in the same nation nor in other parts of Europe.
