World Soil Day: 5th December
The International Year of Soils, 2015 (IYS 2015) was declared by the Sixty-eighth session of the United Nations General Assembly on December 20th, 2013 after recognizing December 5th as World Soil Day.
The purpose of the IYS was to raise awareness worldwide of the importance of soils for food security, agriculture, as well as in mitigation of climate change, poverty alleviation, and sustainable development.
The Soil Science Society of America (SSSA) and the American Society of Agronomy (ASA) have invited the public to continue to celebrate World Soil Day on the 5th of December on an ongoing basis.
The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations has implemented the hashtag, #WorldSoilDay, and a campaign “Stop soil erosion, Save our future,” with suggestions for activities by students, farmers, teachers, NGOs and private sector organizations.
