Launch of an exciting new initiative for World Soil Day

We're very excited to announce the launch of, an ambitious new initiative we have been collaborating on these past months, launched today on the 4th December 2020 in support of World Soil Day. is an online, one-stop-shop for the most engaging and innovative public-facing information and education resources relating to soil health from around the world and across the web. Its aim is to kickstart a nationwide public appreciation and understanding of the economic, societal and ecological importance of soil health.

The World Soil Day launch is targeted at the soils community, so as to give expert individuals and organisations the opportunity to propose ideas and suggestions for content that should be included on the site.

An important feature on the website is the interactive map of Lighthouses, Living Labs and Soil Assessment Networks, where soil best practice and innovative management techniques are being carried out and developed around the country.  If you have your own examples of such work that you’d like to see showcased on the site, please complete this form.

Founding members of uksoils are UK representatives on the EU Mission for Soil Health and Food and its Assembly (the UK Centre for Ecology and Hydrology, Earthwatch, University of Sheffield) and the Sustainable Soils Alliance. The group will continually seek new partners to expand the initiative’s reach and engagement and we are delighted to have been joined most recently by the British Soil Science Society and SRUC.

This is a collaborative initiative so please contact us find out more, offer suggestions or to become a partner!
