World Soil Day
World Soil Day is a day devoted to raising awareness about the importance of maintaining healthy soils for a sustainable future. Healthy soils are essential for agriculture, food security, climate change adaptation and mitigation, and overall ecosystem health. This day often features events like soil health workshops, farmer training sessions, soil conservation and regeneration projects, and public awareness campaigns. These activities aim to highlight the critical role of soil in life on earth, the challenges facing soil health, including erosion, nutrient depletion, and pollution, and the solutions that can help protect and regenerate our soils. This day also encourages policymakers to prioritize soil health in their agendas, recognizing its role in tackling key global issues like food insecurity and climate change.
