The EEB Working Group on Soil works towards maintaining the important issue of soil protection on the EU policy agenda. Its main goal is to ensure that the EU finally gets a much needed legal framework for the protection of soils across the EU. The group consists of members of the EEB who have an interest in promoting policies and practices against soil deterioration. They form EEB policy by sharing experiences and knowledge on how to tackle soil related and the latest scientific knowledge on soil protection. They also devise strategies on influencing policy-making processes with a view to establishing a common EU legal framework for the protection of soil.
The EEB Working Group on Soils is principally a 'virtual' (online) working group and is coordinated by the Senior Policy Officer for Water and Soil Balázs Horváth.
