CircUse-Illustration to Soil Functions – available in many languages!

The illustration to Soil Functions aims to emphasize the value of natural soil. It can help to demonstrate the public reasons why soil is important to protect. The illustration shows 6 ecologic soil functions and their interrelations. As this illustration will also be used as teaching material, a black and white version has been developed as well to serve as drawing model for smaller children.

The illustration contributes to awareness rising and show why we should re-use previously used land instead to build on natural soil e.g. greenfields. The illustration is – next to the project languages – also free available in Spanish, Greek, Hungarian, Romanian, Russian, French, Portuguese and Dutch. Please use it for awareness rising and download the illustration here.
