HuMUS training programmes are publicly available to increase awareness and understanding of the value of soils and soil health challenges and their bio-physical and socio-economic drivers across Europe. These resources provide regions and municipalities with intelligence to make informed decisions.
The syllabus for the Soil Steward training programme provides knowledge and support tools for public officers working at the regional and municipal levels to facilitate soil health dialogues. The syllabus includes guidelines for funding applications, a practical toolbox for moderating dialogues, and conflict management techniques, all specific to soil health discourse. The trainings are delivered in multiple iterations and the syllabus will be made available afterwards.
These training materials will also support the pilot projects selected under the Open Call with targeted guidance drawn from the syllabus.
