World Soil Day Observed at ICMEI
Noida: World Soil Day (WSD) is held annually on 5 December as a means to focus attention on the importance of healthy soil and to advocate for the sustainable management of soil resources.
“Plants nurture a whole world of creatures in the soil, that in return feed and protect the plants. This diverse community of living organisms keeps the soil healthy and fertile. This vast world constitutes soil biodiversity and determines the main biogeochemical processes that make life possible on Earth,” said Dr. Sandeep Marwah President of ICMEI speaking at the seminar organised by the Environment Committee of International Chamber of Media And Entertainment Industry in association with AAFT University of Media And Arts at Marwah Studios Film City Noida.
This year, by addressing the increasing challenges of soil management, the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) campaign “Keep Soil Alive Protect Soil Biodiversity ” aims to raise awareness of the importance of sustaining healthy ecosystems and human well-being.
“By encouraging people around the world to engage in proactively improving soil health, the campaign also aims to fight soil biodiversity loss. If we do not act soon, the fertility of soil will continue to be adversely affected at an alarming rate, threatening global food supplies and food safety,” added Sandeep Marwah who is also President to World Peace Development And Research Foundation and earlier has been awarded as Global Green Ambassador.
