Making soils count – International Year of Soils Scotland 2015

Event Category:
Battleby Conference Centre
Perth, PH1 3EW United Kingdom

You are invited to participate in an interactive day to share soil information and understanding including the role and value of soil and “soil in a digital world”.

This Sharing Good Practice (SGP) event forms part of a programme of activities under the Scotland partnership for promotion of UN International Year of Soils 2015 (IYS2015). IYS2015 provides an opportunity to take stock and reflect on examples of sustainable soil management that exist in Scotland and where gaps in information and resources occur.

This event is organised by Scottish Natural Heritage in partnership with Scottish Environment Protection Agency, Centre for Ecology and Hydrology, Field Studies Council, British Geological Survey, The James Hutton Institute, Centre for Ecology and Hydrology, Scottish Rural College and Cifal Scotland.
