We are walking and driving on them every day. When did you last hold some “dirt” in your hands?
There is no food and thus no human life without healthy soils. Soil also plays an important role for our climate! There is more carbon in our soil than in vegetation and the atmosphere combined!
Let’s take this day as an opportunity to think a minute about our basis – literally – of our food – of a vast carbon storage – of biodiversity, and much more. We need to take care of this important resource we are walking and building on!
