ABOUT WORLD SOIL DAY
The date of 5 December is World Soil Day which was chosen because it corresponds with the official birthday of the late H.M. King Bhumibol Adulyadej, King of Thailand, who was one of the main proponents of this initiative.
World Soil Day 2020 (#WorldSoilDay) and its campaign “Keep soil alive, Protect soil biodiversity” aims to raise awareness of the importance of maintaining healthy ecosystems and human well-being by addressing the growing challenges in soil management, fighting soil biodiversity loss, increasing soil awareness and encouraging governments, organizations, communities and individuals around the world to commit to proactively improving soil health.
On World Soil Day – focus your attention on being part of the solution… Small actions can have a significant impact on the health of our soils for Zero Hunger!
SSA QLD Branch is celebrating WSD as Luncheon event on 26 November, with sponsorship from Soil CRC and Rocky Point and co-hosted with the Queensland Farmers’ Federation, Resource Recovery Recycling & Remanufacturing Waste Hub, and Applied Network for Recycled Organic and Waste Management.
