At the Wageningen Soil Conference 2015 – Soil Science in a Changing World – about 250 soil scientists from 46 different countries met with policy makers to discuss how soil sciences can contribute to confront the great challenges of our time - food security, water resources, biodiversity, land functions and climate change. Challenged by an inspiring opening speech by the Wageningen UR President Prof. dr Louise Fresco, the participants agreed on a resolution that outlines a direction and approach to ensure that soil solutions will be used to improve the quality of life. You can download the resolution below.
We invite you to spread the resolution in your network, absorb its contents, and act accordingly. Together we can make a change and contribute to the quality of life!
