Soil and Land Management Award

What

The aim of this prize is to encourage new concepts of protection and their implementation and to enhance awareness of the importance of land and soil in connection with good agriculture and environmental conditions..

Why

Through the Soil and Land Management Award, the ELO wishes to draw the attention of politicians and decision makers and the general public to the fact that, without human activities, environmental management – which, among other things, means biodiversity enhancement, soil improvements or landscape stewardship - is impossible on the long run..

Who

The European Landowner’s Organization (ELO), under the auspices of the European Commission (DG Environment and the Joint Research Centre) and in association with the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences (BOKU) of Vienna, Syngenta International AG, as well as the Centre for Soil and Environmental Sciences of the Ljubljana University..

Where

The Award Ceremony takes places every year at the occasion of the FFA Gala dinner. Thierry de l’ESCAILLE, Friends of the Countryside Secretary General, introduces the award during the ceremony, attended by around 300 people..

Who can participate

This prize rewards private initiatives of professionals working in the area of land use and soil management pursuing the EU’s soil protection goals, in particular those of the Soil Thematic Strategy..
