European Soil Group Annual Meeting

And another year has passed! Our next virtual Annual Meeting will be an important one, because we need to take a lot of decisions. The GSE has been officially in existence for 6 years now, and a lot has changed since 2015. While the initial purpose was to inform the SIP Forum on the European dimension regarding the soil, we then moved on to contributing to the development of a common European soil strategy.

Is this still a valid approach and way of organising?

Is it still useful to produce a monthly Newsletter?

Has the time not come to pass on the torch to the next generation?

Is it always necessary to have a SIP Forum working group on the European dimension?

What structure needs to be in place in order to satisfy the need to fight common battles?

The upcoming GSE annual meeting will need to make these and other “existential” decisions. We intend to hold it on Friday 18 February 2022 between 20:00 and 23:00, on a virtual platform. As usual the meeting, also if only in Italian, will be open to all those who wish to participate, but in order to structure the platform to suit the number of participants, we ask those interested to email suolo.europa@gmail.com by 25 January 2022.
