100 years of soil science past achievements and future challenges
The International Union of Soil Sciences, the Italian Society of Soil Science and the City of Florence are hosting the Centennial Celebration and Congress of the International Union of Soil Sciences in May 2024. The event will empower soil science and its linkages with different disciplines, policy makers, stakeholders, institutions, and associations to effectively address civil society needs within agriculture, forestry, environment, urban planning, energy, education, and other societal issues.
The event will take place in Florence between the 19 and 21 May 2024. The first day it will be the Centennial Celebration, followed by two intense days of congress, with plenary and parallel scientific sessions. Both soil scientists and specialists from other disciplines will participate to each session, focusing on past achievements and future challenges. The congress will be followed by technical/scientific excursions that will range from short local to long trips, spanning from Alps to Sicily. A pre-congress visit to Villa Lubin in Rome, the historical place where the IUSS was founded, is scheduled on 18 May.
