World Soil Day 2020
RAC is excited to celebrate World Soil Day (WSD) on the 5th December. This year’s (WSD) theme is “Keep soil alive, protect biodiversity”. Hundreds of events are held across the globe to raise awareness of soils, bringing together governments, businesses, scientists, NGOs, the media and general public in the campaign for soil health.
The diversity of people interested in the diversity of soil is demonstrated by two recent publications: from the winner of the WSD scientific children’s book contest on Soil Biodiversity, announced today, to a report on the current status of knowledge and importance of soil biodiversity published in 2020 showcasing the work of more than 300 soil experts.
It is never too early to start protecting soil; the danger is leaving it too late.
