Awards for Quality Land Management 2018-2019

The European Landowners’ Organisation (ELO) has launched two competitions for quality land management: the Land and Soil Management Award and the Anders Wall Award. The application deadline for both is 31 December 2018.

 

 

The Land and Soil Management Award rewards land use and soil management practices mitigating soil threats i.e. soil degradation, erosion, reduction of organic matter content, diffuse contamination, and compaction as well as the reduction of soil biodiversity, salinization, sealing, flooding and landslides. 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.

It is open to farmers, landowners, land managers, groups of farmers, on their own or in collaboration with research institutes, universities and/or private companies. €5,000 is awarded to the winning project every year.

 

The Anders Wall Award grants a prize to private individuals who have made a special contribution to the rural environment within the European Union.

Only private enterprises can enter the competition. Their actions must be of importance at local, national and/or European level and they must be based on the use of quality instruments and management practices which contribute to the improvement of the quality of the environment.

The winner will receive a prize of €20,000.
