L’initiative 4 pour mille : un nouveau défi concret pour le sol

17 – 20 juin

17/06 : Field trip to Lusignan long-term experimental platform

[conférence en anglais]

The conference aims to build partnerships for soil sustainability and resilience, promote innovation and knowledge exchange, and ensure that appropriate solutions are put into practices under the framework of the 4 per mille initiative.

The event will include inclusive round tables aimed at strengthening the involvement of socio-economic researchers, private sector (corporations and non profit) etc. in the initiative. This specifically aims at finding new business models, which include investment in soil capital as a long-term business opportunity.

The conference will seek to:

  • Discuss and try to close controversies that exist concerning the implementation of the 4 per 1000 initiative
  • Explore the scientific studies and practical experiences that will unravel the barriers and opportunities of SOC storage in different parts of the world
  • Explore how this initiative will affect the role and influence of different communities in networks of knowledge production
  • Explore innovative aspects, scientific breakthroughs of new practices, new social and political strategies to stimulate investment in the “soil” capital.
