The LIFE Platform Meeting on Soils aimed to foster networking, feedback, and policy input among the stakeholders involved in soil-related projects funded by the LIFE Programme.

The meeting covered three main soil sectors: conservation and adaptation, contamination and bioremediation, and management and mitigation. Attendees also discussed horizontal topics such as soil health monitoring, climate change, promotion of soil literacy, economic opportunities, and water-soil nexus.
