World Soil Day 2014

Soils have been neglected for too long. We fail to connect soil with
our food, water, climate, biodiversity and life. We must invert this
tendency and take up some preserving and restoring actions. The World Soil Day campaign aims to connect people with soils and raise awareness on their critical importance in our lives.

Did you know?
Soil is the basis for food, feed, fuel and fibre production and for services to ecosystems and human well-being.
It is the reservoir for at least a quarter of global
biodiversity, and therefore requires the same attention as above-ground
biodiversity. Soils play a key role in the supply of clean water and
resilience to floods and droughts. The largest store of terrestrial
carbon is in the soil so that its preservation may contribute to climate
change adaptation and mitigation. Soils also serve as a platform and
source for construction and raw materials. The maintenance or
enhancement of global soil resources is essential if humanity’s need for
food, water, and energy security is to be met

Check out our campaign material: Posters, Postcards, Christmas cards, Infographics, T-shirt templates and much more.
