Global Soil Week

You are striving towards achieving a more sustainable use of soils? You are working on responsible land governance, sustainable soil and land management or international soil policy? The Global Soil Week (GSW) invites you to contribute to the 2nd Global Soil Week 2013 “Losing Ground?” which will take place in Berlin on 27-31 October 2013.

The Global Soil Week is an international multi-stakeholder event dedicated to the sustainable management of soils. It evolved from the collaboration between the Global Soil Forum of the Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies (IASS) and its partners, Steering Committee and National Support Group. It is a contribution to the Global Soil Partnership (GSP).

The event aims at (i) establishing a transdisciplinary process for exchanging knowledge and experiences on land and soil issues, and (ii) raising public awareness on the importance of soils globally to influence land and soil policies for sustainable development.
