Soil is a vital part of the natural environment that is often overlooked.It plays an important role in many ecological processes. Directly or indirectly, soil provides sustenance to all life: plants, animals including humans, and other organisms. However, soil has been deteriorating rapidly due to unsustainable human activities.‘Soil and Us’ program enables students to learn from nature. Through conducting various interactive activities, students can learn about the role in of soil in human society and nature. Through close observation and touching the soil, they can discover and appreciate the life nurtured by soil and understand the importance of maintaining soil health and soil conservation. Apart from the guidance from the instructors, participants can also learn through discussion and sharing, to reflect our relationship with nature and the importance of sustainable development.
