A nation that rebuilds soil rebuilds itself

‘A nation that rebuilds its soils rebuilds itself’ is all about rebuilding soils to rebuild environmental, economic and societal health. Using waste minerals and organic matter, aligning with the circular economy to rebuild soils can help address several of the UN's 17 Sustainable Development Goals including SDG13 on climate change mitigation and adaptation.

Soil health and biodiversity

The positive correlation between soil health and underground biodiversity is relatively well understood and Diana Wall is a leading world expert in this area. However, the links between soil health with above ground biodiversity are less well understood. We will discuss these issues and consider the apparent disconnect between achieving net zero targets by building up carbon in soils and the effect this might have on biodiversity above and below ground.

Soil and human health

The panel includes experts Sarah Dack from Public Health England & Ian Martin from the Environment Agency who will join Karen Johnson (Engineering) & Lynsay Blake (Biosciences) to discuss the links between soil and human health and how soil is the basis of both our health and wealth. Exploring both the positive & negative links between soil and human health, we will consider how by using wastes as resources and aligning with the circular economy, we could boost both soil health and human health.

How to build a terrarium

Social scientists Anna Krzywoszynska and Lena Dominelli will join physical scientists Wendy Stone and Karen Johnson and Sustainability educationalist Joanne Appleby from OASES to look at how to build terrariums. Terrariums are very fashionable at the moment but can also be used by scientists to study global biogeochemical cycles such as the carbon cycle. Effectively we can study soil’s circular economy in a jar.
