In doing so, the award sheds light on outstanding achievements, encouraging new concepts of land and soil protection and their implementation in land management, as well as enhancing awareness about the importance of land and soil functions.
5.000 Euro as well as a diploma of recognition are awarded to the winning project every year. Application deadline: 311215 Information & application: http://www.europeanlandowners.org/awards/soil-land-award
