…. Let’s get started

As we have mentioned in previous newsletters, the SIP Forum Gruppo Suolo Europa (Europe Soil Group) is taking action to achieve two objectives: dialogue between the various actors that use or are involved in the soil; and synergies between the various voluntary associations in civil society whose main focus is not on the soil.

In order to achieve the first objective it is necessary to break down prejudices and fixed positions in order to build mutual respect at least, if not complete trust. The second is frequently blocked by the structures of those voluntary organizations themselves.

Both these objectives are hard to achieve and require time. We are reminded that in order to be sustainable the concept of “time” must be respected and cannot be artificially “compressed”. This is illustrated by the failure of the attempt to collect a million signatures for the people4soil European Citizens’ Initiative, which perhaps failed to take account of this fact.

NEWSLETTER n. 33

Why a Soil’s Angel Newsletter? In 1966, Florence was completely flooded. From all part of the world, thousands of people –mainly young – joined their forces to save the cultural and historic heritage deeply affected by the water. They were called “mud’s angels”. What motivated those people? Surely solidarity but also the acknowledgement that the future of the World Heritage was in danger. We need to have the same will and the same strong effort to save the soil for next generations!We need Soil’s Angels in all Europe able to use their energies to preserve soil, land and landscape.

The Soil’s Angels Newsletter is a tool to create synergies among all people with only one aim: to save the world heritage that has as a name Soil.
