Caring for Soils - Where Our Roots Grow.

Links4Soils project focus was to connect knowledge about soil in the Alps between users (different stakeholders, managers) and professionals - pedologists, to prepare and disseminate dedicated soil information, that would increase soil protection and contribute to better soil management. The project contributed to better visibility and implementation of the Soil Conservation Protocol of the Alpine convention, which was signed in 1991 by all Alpine countries. The project was also recognised in all sectors, i.e. agriculture, spatial planning, forestry, natural disaster protection and tourism, demonstrating a good example that they (the sectors) all have something in common: soil. Linking knowledge and showing examples of good sustainable practices of soil management in the Alpine region, connected us to stakeholders and our observers which gave us a lot of positive feedback for future work!
