Caring for Soils - Where Our Roots Grow.

Summer school for the youth

During the project, we organised/participated in two international summer schools in order to raise awareness about the topic "Alpine soils" in cooperation with YPAC and FAO.

The first summer school was organised in the cooperation with FAO-Mountain partnership and dedicated to sustainable management of mountain areas and is organized by the Mountain Partnership Secretariat of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) (observer of the Links 4Soils project) with the University of Turin.

The second summer school was organised in Slovenia, Pokljuka, with the emphasis on knowledge transfer about soils to the youth - the future managers and users of land/soil and other natural resources and promotion & dissemination of soil knowledge and awareness among young people.
