About Soil, SDGs and World Soil Day 关于土壤,可持续发展目标,世界土壤日



Soil is a much more complex growing habitat that remains productive only when it is cared for and nurtured. Combating and addressing soil pollution means assessing and minimizing the risks for food security, human health and the environment. Global activities need to be launched and implemented in order to reduce soil pollution and remediate polluted sites. Be the Solution, to Soil Pollution!     

Special Role of Soils for SDGs  

Soil is an essential element of Knowledge @ Terra Classrooms, because of its essential role across global regions for urban-rural development and human-fauna-flora health, related to 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals 2030. Global Soil and Landscape Typology Map shows, that Differences & Similarities of Global Soils can connect different territorial actions.    

Since 2014, every 5th December is World Soil Day  

Land, soil and water are most essential resources of the planet earth. In the winter days around the World Soil Day,  the lesser-known soil resource gets key attention, combining integral environmental recognition and technical solutions for urban-rural development, food safety, agricultural practices and other key environmental issues. Guided by United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation (UN FAO) and Global Soil Partnership (GSP), World Soil Day 2018 focuses on “Be the Solution to Soil Pollution”.  


土壤是一个及其复杂的生长栖息地,只有在受到照顾和培育时才能保持生产力。打击和解决土壤污染意味着评估和降低粮食安全、人类健康和生态环境的风险。需要启动和实施全球活动,以减少土壤污染和修复污染场地。请致力于土壤污染的解决方案! ​-- UN-FAO  联合国粮农组织
