Working groups for IYS
Within the IUSS a number of working groups are actively working on different soil tasks.
For the International Year of Soils the IUSS and the working groups have decided to enforce the raising of soil awareness.
Each month one working group will present its current work on this site, providing information on that specific soil topic.
They will also provide the soil message which intends to present important key messages on soil to inform the public. This message will be also available on the main page of this website
