World Soil Day 2022
Nutrition is a vital component of our lives, and healthy meal commodities are supplied by vegetation that grows and develops in the healthy ground. Although it may seem absurd, the soil has a significant impact on people's lives. The Soil supports a wide variety of living forms, such as bacteria, fungi, algae, etc. Soil is a fundamental substance that all living creatures require to survive. Every year on December 5, World Soil Day is commemorated to encourage responsible natural soil utilization and to encourage a greater comprehension of the importance of fertile soils. It is down to us as individuals to preserve the base soils fresh and devoid of garbage. Whenever people throw the trash into the land, it loses its nutrients and ability to support plant growth.
The poisoning of soil with extremely high amounts of harmful chemicals is referred to as soil pollution. This is brought on by human meddling, which results in the soil becoming more poisonous and gradually harming living things. This is created by humans pouring superfluous waste products into the soil. Because our soil has degraded throughout the millennia as a result of undesirable pollutants, among the biggest important concerns for global food security and sustainability is recognised as soil nutrient loss.
The "Institutional Green Committee" is a group that was constituted by the Kristu Jayanti College campus with the intention of maximising consciousness and fostering ecological protection at both the interpersonal and societal levels. This committee has a proactive approach toward environmental conservation. On December 5, 2022, the Centre for Environment and Sustainability honoured World Soil Day at Kristu Jayanti College, Bengaluru.
The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) promotes youngsters and adults globally to take better responsibility for the soil annually. Dating back to the founding of this occasion, it commemorates the birthdate of the late H.M. King Bhumibol Adulyadej, King of Thailand and a strong advocate for preserving healthy soil for future generations.
Another thing that needs to be addressed carefully is sustaining a balanced lifestyle, and soil is fundamental to the above. Saving the soil must begin immediately and not wait until tomorrow. Start with the essentials, such as disposing of waste in carry bags, not using chemical pesticides on vegetation, and providing facilities for water to flow into the soil. Because it took decades to replenish depleted soils, utilise it cautiously.
