Hearings of the new Commissioners in the European Parliament

August is a time for holidays and for rest. It is said that during the period we “recharge our batteries” in order to face the coming 11 months of activity. But this is not the case for everyone. Following the European elections, a number of people worked hard during August in order to prepare for the next session of Hearings in the European Parliament. The various Commissioners will be officially presented by the new  Commission president, Ursula von der Leyen. The SIP Forum and its European Soil Group are also working to help welcome the new Commissioners, especially those who will be concerned with the soil, that is, the Commissioners for the Environment, Climate,  Agriculture and Research.

We therefore invite you to join in. We want you to put yourselves in the place of a newly elected MEP, to take part in the hearing for one of the 4 Commissioners named above and to ask them a question about the soil. What would your question be?

Send your ideas to suolo.europa@gmail.com and we will see if somehow or other we can get them mentioned during the relevant hearings. But be quick, because the hearings start soon.
