|Call for Contributions to the 3rd Global Soil Week 2015
|19 April 2015 - 23 April 2015
2015 is an important year for the future of sustainable development!
Several initiatives and political processes related to soils and land will converge in 2015. The negotiations for the Post-2015 Development Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will be in full swing. The United Nations General Assembly has declared 2015 the International Year of Soils. And the United Nations Climate Change Conference will work towards achieving a global agreement on climate. All of these events are a special opportunity to raise awareness about the important role of soils and land for sustainable development. The 3rd Global Soil Week 2015 invites all stakeholders to join forces to encourage sustainable soil management and responsible land governance at global, regional and local level.

What is the Global Soil Week?
After the success of the first Global Soil Week in 2012, the second Global Soil Week in 2013 again attracted over 450 participants from 71 countries. The Global Soil Week serves as a multi-stakeholder platform to promote sustainable development in the areas of sustainable soil management and responsible land governance. Policy-makers, scientists from different disciplines, stakeholders from civil society organisations, students, farmers, artists, as well as stakeholders from international organizations and industry came together and created a unique atmosphere for finding strategies to ensure the sustainable management of our soils and land.
The Global Soil Week now invites you to come together once again and help to put soils and land on the global sustainable development agenda. We encourage contributions from non-Academic backgrounds.
