UK '4 per mil' Debate (incorporating the 2017 Annual General Meeting)

24th August 2017

Call for Posters now open!

The BSSS 2017 annual meeting (with AGM) will host presentations and debate on what the ‘4 per 1000’ initiative means for UK soils.

The ‘4 per 1000’ (4 per mil) initiative was launched at the COP21 in 2015, with the aim to slow down the increase in atmospheric concentrations of CO2 by annually increasing global soil organic carbon stocks by 0.4 % per year.

This initiative has sparked mixed reaction to the feasibility of achieving this, and discussion over what this means for soil management. We now invite you to contribute to this debate.
