10/10/2023 - 11/10/2023 :
Soil protection congress in October SOILUZIOAK 2023

In person: Palacio Eukalduna Jauregia Bilbao

On 10 and 11 October, the Euskalduna Conference Centre in Bilbao will host SOILUZIOAK 2023, the soil protection congress of the Basque Country.  The event will gather together around 250 experts in this field to bring to the table the need to protect this resource from all angles.

The congress, organised by the Basque Government through Ihobe, its environmental management agency, and Sprilur, its industrial land management company, will be the opportunity to reflect on the challenges of soil protection from different perspectives and will seek to provide criteria and showcase European and regional good practices for its protection.

Furthermore, the congress will bring to the fore the work by Basque administrations and other agents in this area; it will highlight the Basque Government's commitment to the deployment of its Soil Protection Strategy 2030; and will seek to position the Basque Country at the forefront of soil management. In fact, the Basque strategy is a trail-blazer in Europe given its holistic approach.

In order to advance towards protecting the soil from all angles, SOILUZIOAK 2023 will seek to marshal the efforts of all the public administrations and companies involved, of professionals who research, generate knowledge or apply measures to protect this resource, and also of the general public, from a single vision: for soil to be managed sustainably by 2050, thus guaranteeing the health and functions of the resource in the long-term, for its enjoyment by future generations.

Therefore, SOILUZIOAK 2023 will provide inspiring talks, papers of high technical value, parallel sessions with discussions and success stories. There will also be workshops, showcasing experiences and field-trips to learn first-hand about different projects with soil and its sustainable management in common.

Attending the event costs € 50, including coffee breaks, lunch, field trips and materials.
