Soil Health is the New Wealth

Soil health embodies the enduring ability of soil to operate as a dynamic living ecosystem, essential for sustaining plants, animals, and humans alike. It is a crucial nexus, bridging agricultural and soil sciences with policy frameworks, addressing stakeholder needs, and fostering sustainable supply-chain management. Traditionally, soil assessments primarily targeted crop productivity. However, contemporary perspectives on soil health encompass its pivotal roles in water quality, climate resilience, and human well-being. In this panel discussion, we spotlighted arguably the most critical component of our food production: soil. At Green Vision, we illuminate the paramount importance of soil health, showcasing exemplary instances of implemented solutions that exemplify best practices in our collective stewardship of this invaluable resource.

OPENING SESSION (INTERVIEW) Small Nations, Big Impact: Meet the Leaders

Our global society is composed of many nations, small and big. In the eagerness to focus on Superpowers, we can often overlook the importance of smaller nations. And just as the lesser cogs keep a functioning mechanism in motion, small nations are often at the very core of global societies and we have much to learn from them. The Prime Ministers of these nations have a very hard task defending their international relevance, as well as simply running their countries. Here, we are honoured and delighted to welcome the heads of two such nations - our own Maltese PM, Robert Abela and the PM of Sao Tome and Principe Islands who will share their perspectives.
