It's time to get your hands dirty!

If you are looking to make a sustainable difference through collaboration, then why not share your expertise with like-minded professionals via the Society for the Environment’s (SocEnv) Soils and Stones project? 

Since 2019, the SocEnv Soils and Stones project has brought together experts from across sectors including the built environment, forestry, engineering, land management and agriculture. This includes current and aspiring chartered environmentalists to lead the way through:

  1. sharing good practice on soils and stones use/re-use
  2. advocating for policies that recognise the value of these hugely valuable resources; and
  3. making connections and finding solutions via collaboration.

The project’s achievements to date include the 2021 Soils and Stones report. Its influence is demonstrated by the fact that its authors were invited to give evidence to the 2023 Soil Health Inquiry, with the resulting inquiry report referring to Soils and Stones evidence and key asks.

The Ten Principles of Good Soils and Stones Management provided an overarching framework.

However, your expertise is needed. According to a House of Commons Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Committee report, 58% of the tonnage received by landfills is soil waste (bit.ly/HoC_soilhealthreport). Experts like you have a huge role to play when it comes to ensuring sustainable resource management and safeguarding soil health.
