World Soil Day (WSD) - December 5, 2019

 
World Soil Day (WSD) is held annually on December 5th as a means to focus attention on the importance of healthy soil and advocating for the sustainable management of soil resources.
 
This year, the campaign organized by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) highlights the importance of fighting soil erosion.
 
More information on the campaign can be found on the  FAO website , where worldwide events can be followed, and campaign materials, educational posters in several languages, such as infographics, videos can be downloaded.
 
In the framework of the World Soil Day 2019, the FAO Global Soil Partnership would like to challenge children, teens, students, young people, and adults worldwide to cover the soil and take a step to #StopSoilErosion. Planting local species is a fun and easy way to help the soil, fight erosion and raise awareness for WSD.
