Vision: To empower a globally connected network of soil systems partners for sustainable development.
Mission: To co-create a diverse and inclusive soil systems community of scientists, practitioners, and society toward climate-adaptive, sustainable, food and water systems.
Why “Soil for Society”?
Soil systems are at the heart of food & water security, ecosystem services, and climate adaptation – fundamental to sustainable development. Improving the resilience of soil systems is a societal grand challenge requiring global collaboration to create solutions. With funding from the National Science Foundation, we are developing an international network of networks to address this challenge; Soil for Society Network.
What is the goal?
The outcome of the two-year project will be the design of a global network of networks targeting soil systems for sustainable development. We are recruiting working partners in this area to contribute to co-designing this network of networks.
As a member of the network, you will be invited to:
- Participate in a survey to identify key challenges facing individuals and communities and identify multi-sectoral solutions to address them.
- Participate in a virtual workshop series to co-design the network of networks.
- Showcase your work through a virtual webinar series dedicated to exchanging knowledge and building partnerships.
