The United Nations declaration of the International Year of Soils in 2015 is well-grounded with compelling evidence. Although soil is quite literally the ground of our sustenance, and the basis with which to feed the world, soil degradation is an urgent global problem.

The third Global Soil Week (GSW 2015) is a prominent international forum on sustainable soil and land management, addressing science, politics and media. The GSW aims to raise attention for sustainable and responsible soil and land management in international policy and in public debates.

The third Global Soil Week will take place in Berlin, Germany from 19 to 23 April, 2015
