The issue of land take is especially pressing in the Alpine area, where multiple land use demands meet particularly limited and already intensively used spaces. The assessment of soil functions can be a valuable tool for soil protection and for spatial planning.
The Alpine Convention working groups on Soil Protection as well as Spatial Planning and Sustainable Development are therefore organising a joint workshop to discuss soil functions and spatial planning in the Alps. You can register via this form until 25 March.
This cross-sectoral exchange will cover land take, soil protection and the role of soil functions in spatial planning. The workshop will wrap up with an outlook and an examination of what the soil sector can expect from spatial planning and what the planning sector needs to adequately consider soil functions.
The two-day workshop is taking place in Munich, Germany, from 29-30 March 2022. The workshop will be held in English. Full details are available in the programme.
Take advantage of the opportunity to hear from and discuss with experts and youth representatives live! The workshop will be a great networking opportunity where you can see familiar faces again as well as get to know new ones!
The workshop is being jointly organised by the Alpine Convention working groups on Soil Protection as well as Spatial Planning and Sustainable Development with the support of the Permanent Secretariat of the Alpine Convention and is financed by the German Federal Ministry for Housing, Urban Development and Building as well as the Austrian Federal Ministry for Climate Action, Environment, Energy, Mobility, Innovation and Technology.
