Save Our Soils to Sustain Our Societies (SOS2)

Published in October 2001

This document presents proposals likely to contribute to the emergence of behavior and practices leading to the protection of soils against different types of degradation and to the rehabilitation of degraded soils.


Protecting soils from degradation and using them in a renewable way requires a real and profound transformation of humankind's attitudes towards this resource. The Soil Campaign considers that there are at least three indispensable and inseparable conditions for undertaking a transformation in the behavior of the human community vis-à-vis soil:
1) to rehabilitate soil in popular culture;
2) to legislate on soils as an only slightly renewable resource indispensable for life, the preservation of which is indispensable;
3) to add soil to the universal heritage of humankind as an entity for which the conservation requires complete human solidarity.
For each of these three points, the document presents proposals likely to contribute to the emergence of behavior and practices leading to the protection of soils against different types of degradation and to the rehabilitation of degraded soils.
