The overall aim of the Global Symposium on Soil Biodiversity (GSOBI21) is to review the role of soil biodiversity and ecosystem services in tackling environmental problems, and to drive actions towards the implementation of the World Soil Charter along with the Voluntary Guidelines for Sustainable Soil Management. Specifically, the symposium outcomes will provide evidence to support actions to protect soil biodiversity and promote its sustainable use and management by addressing the underlying causes of soil biodiversity loss and enhancing implementation of sustainable practices.

The symposium outcome document “Keep soil alive, protect soil biodiversity” will highlight the importance of soil biodiversity not only for food production, but for enhancing the benefits to all and in various ways and at multiple scales, including biodiversity-based solutions for global challenges, human well-being, health and nutritional food and new medicinal discoveries, including the discovery of new antibiotics.
