Jane Mills has been at the BonaRes Conference in Berlin this week (26-28th February) where she made a presentation based on research under the EU funded RECARE and Soilcare projects.
On 14th February 2018, Jane Mills attended the “Where for UK soil after Brexit?” conference at the Soil Research Centre, Reading University, where she presented posters on the RECARE and SoilCare projects, on which she has been working.
On World Soil Day, we talk about how scientists are looking at how the soil can capture carbon and so lessen climate change, how to stabilise the soil to slow the flow of water and stop flooding, and how agricultural soils can be managed sustainably into the future ensuring we are all fed.
Today is World Soil Day, when the attention of the world is focussed on one of our most important natural resources – soil. World Soil Day is held annually on 5th December to highlight the importance of soil on Earth, which we need for basic survival – food and energy.
Jane Mills is taking part in the fifth European Network of Soil Awareness – Joint Research Centre (ENSA-JRC) meeting in Bratislava on 28th – 29th September. The workshop is called ‘Giving Soils a Voice 2017’.
Jane Mills talks to Faye Hatcher on BBC Radio Gloucestershire about the importance of soil and how it is often forgotten and undervalued as a global resource
World Soil Day is the one day in the year that the United Nations asks us all to think about the role of soil in our daily lives and how it protects us from many environmental problems. Today we talk about how the RECARE project has gathered scientists from across Europe to find practical answers to sustaining healthy soil.
CCRI has welcomed the recent report from the House of Commons Environmental Audit Committee on Soil Health, which states that soil is often overlooked as an essential component to human life. Read Jane Mills’ blog about CCRI’s work in the challenge to address soil degradation.
The CCRI is part of a new EU funded 5 year research project, which will be looking at measures to prevent and remediate soil degradation in Europe.
