Are you ready to celebrate World Soil Day?

With World Soil Day 2017 approaching fast, the GSP Secretariat and partners are geared up to help create change by providing the soil community with tools and activities for an unforgettable celebration that will create a global buzz.

Here’s a smart guide to get you to the heart of World Soil Day 2017 celebrations for 5 December under the theme “Caring for the planet starts from the ground”.

On #WorldSoilDay, the world's attention will be focused on pressing issues affecting soils, including degradation and pollution. To this end, specific attention will be given to the role of soil organic carbon in mitigating the effects of climate change. Indeed, the Intergovernmental Technical Panel on Soils (ITPS) will launch the Global Soil Organic Carbon Map (GSOCmap) - the first global soil organic carbon map ever produced through a participatory and country driven approach. The map will support countries to build their own national soil information systems and report on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), with a focus on SDG 15.3.1.

Help us to make World Soil Day a real global success! Please tell your friends and colleagues and help disseminate the new World Soil Day webpage:

Happy World Soil Day!

Estimados socios y amigos de la SUCS,

Tenemos el agrado de invitarles a la presentación del libro "La fertilidad del suelo y su manejo", de quien fuera el segundo presidente de nuestra SUCS, el Dr. Armando Rabuffetti.

Será una ocasión especial para recordar al "Rabu" y compartir con su familia la presentación de esta obra, en la que nos deja buena parte de sus conocimientos y experiencias en este campo de la ciencia.

Sub: The Solutions Under Foot

Fellow Soil Scientists,

A critical appraisal of the state-of-the-soil sciences at the universities around the world indicates that enrollments in classes are down, accredited graduate degrees are rare, number of faculty members are 5 to 10 compared with 20 to 25 a few decades ago, no advocacy groups are knocking at the doors of administration for replacement of the retiring professors, and there are no specific budget lines for funding research under the auspices of national science foundations. Alas, these trends are in strong contrast to the global estimates of 16 deaths per minute attributed to hunger and malnutrition, increasing risks of warming climate and depleting
aquifers, soil erosion by water of 36 Gt annually, and the exacerbating eutrophication and non-point source pollution of water bodies. Yet, science and profession of soil have a bright future. Soil and its sustainable management are on global political agenda (COP21, Paris; COP22, Marrakech; COP23, Bonn). We must seize the moment, avail the opportunities, bring about the paradigm shift, and prepare the future generations of soil scientists to manage soil for addressing the societal needs.

IUSS Alert 148 (October 2017)

IUSS at EGU 2018
Abstract submission has started for the EGU General Assembly 2018 (EGU2018) that will take place 08–13 Apr 2018 in Vienna, Austria. You are kindly invited to find a session for your abstract at:
In particular, the Secretariat would like to draw your attention to the fact that IUSS is involved in the organisation of the session SSS1.3/EOS5 Soil science education, outreach and public engagement (co-organized). This session welcomes all perspectives on teaching soil science from school level to continuing professional development in non-academic settings. Contributions are welcomed that move away from concepts and methods for teaching soil science within traditional disciplines (chemistry, biology, physics) to those that use soil systems approaches. [...]
IUSS kindly invites you to submit abstracts until 10 January 2018, 13:00 CET.

If you would like to apply for a Roland Schlich travel support, please submit no later than 01 December 2017. Details can be found at:

Global Soil Partnership Newsletter

Since 2012, the soil community has celebrated World Soil Day (WSD) on the 5th of December to raise awareness on the importance of soils for ZeroHunger, essential eco-system services – including climate change adaptation and mitigation – and sustainable development. Each year, there are events in over 150 countries across the world, making WSD a huge day on the UN calendar. On 5th December 2017, we are launching the first-ever Global Soil Organic Carbon map (GSOCmap). GSOCmap supports the development and empowerment of countries to build their national soil information systems, and so identify land that can be rehabilitated to increase food production and climate change mitigation through increased storage of soil organic carbon.

The theme of the World Soil Day campaign this year is "Caring for the planet starts from the ground". The GSP Secretariat, along with the GSP Partners, are committed to creating change and providing the soil community with tools and activities for an unforgettable celebration. So, join the movement, and help us create a buzz around #WorldSoilDay. Create tangible impact by inspiring action from governments, cities or local authorities, media, the private sector, local communities, teachers, students, colleagues and many others.

The success of the World Soil Day depends on you! Please tell your friends and colleagues and help disseminate the new World Soil Day webpage:
