Published on May 11, 2016

The Organic Week in the Biodiversity Park of the Expo Milano, 03-05 September 2015, featured a number of presentations and discussions.

The first day examined the state of our soils and saw leading experts such as Helen Browning (Soil Association), Tobias Bandel (Soil & More), and John D. Liu (Environmental Education Media Project & Commonland Foundation) take to the stage. They highlighted the urgent need to conserve soils and the instrumental role organic agriculture can play in doing so. In declaring 2015 the International Year of Soils, the United Nations acknowledged that without healthy soils, we cannot feed the world.
