Fostering soil health for farm and forest resilience in Spain: First stakeholder workshop
Join Us in Shaping the Future of Land Management for Healthy Soils and Resilient Landscapes!
The BENCHMARKS project, in collaboration with the Spanish Research Council (CSIC), Fundacion Regeneration Academy, and Commonland Foundation, is thrilled to announce our first Stakeholder Engagement Workshop in La Junquera, Murcia, Spain, scheduled for November 3rd, 2023.
Our workshop, titled “ Soil Health for Farm and Forest Resilience ” confronts the pressing issue of the profound impacts of soil degradation on nature and society and the opportunities provided by sustainable land management to reverse these impacts. Drawing together participants from diverse backgrounds, including farmers, foresters, private and public sector stakeholders, educators, and concerned citizens, this event offers a unique platform for collectively addressing soil health challenges.
