Presentation at the international seminar: How to face climate change10.02.2017 By: Transfer Consultancy
On the first of February 2017, Sven Kallen and Egbert Sonneveld participated at the Seminar
¿How to face climate change?
The seminar was organized by the INIAV (Instituto Nacional de investigaçao Agrária e veterinária) in colaboration with the Embassy of the Kingdom of The Netherlands, in Oeiras, Portugal.
Egbert Sonneveld and Transfer’s Sven Kallen were invited to present their experience in different Life soil restoration projects using agro ecological and agro forestry techniques.
Both Life Operation CO2 and Life Crops for Better Soil have demonstrated that applying innovative techniques (mycorrhiza and soil bacteria, integral planning, etc.) in combination with old-fashioned logic and successful practices from the past (crop rotation, sowing on ridges, reintroduction of traditional crops, etc.) form the ingredients for a quick turnaround of poor and fragil soils to make these productive again in a sustainable way. There was a lot of interest for the seminar and especially for the Life projects. Sven and Egbert were asked many times how to participate in this very attractive instrument of the EU.
