Soils2Sea: Film Screening and Discussion

Thursday, 15 December, the scientific project "Soils2Sea" is a guest at the MitOst headquarters and presents its documentary on the reduction of soil pollution in the catchment of the Baltic Sea.

"Soils2Sea: Reducing Nutrient Loadings into the Baltic Sea" 

Background 
The documentary film "Soils2Sea: Reducing nutrient loadings into the Baltic Sea" illustrates the social aspects and regional realities of implementing the EU Nitrates Directive in particular in the Kocinka catchment area in South Central Poland. The film features perceptions, interpretations, and suggestions for action from farmers, water treatment specialists, local policy makers, and scientists and also draws attention to Poland's unique historical, socio-cultural-political circumstances in farming while tracing potential local level solutions that seek to reduce Poland's share of agricultural pollution to the Baltic Sea.

The movie was developed and produced by Dr. Grit Martinez (Ecologic Institute) and Anne Berrini (berrini films) with support from Dr. Przemysław Wachniew (AGH University of Science and Technology Krakow).
