Bucharest Montessori Education, Romania
My first presentation was about ”What is the soil?” The children in my class have already studied about the layers of the earth: Barysphere, Hydrosphere and Lithosphere. Soil is part of the Lithosphere, the outermost part of it. Then we start talking about the composition of the soil: what it contains as non-living matter and the life inside the soil: microbes, fungi, bacteria, worms, insects, and other animals. We also discussed …

When I joined the Save Soil movement I saw the possibility to reconnect with my first memory about soil. I was about 7 years old and my teacher asked us to monitor the growth of a bean and look after that tiny piece of life. This first experience never lost its sense of magic and mystery for me. How was it possible for a seed to transform itself into a plant on a piece of cotton wool and then grow enough to continue living in soil? I recalled transplanting it into …

I was amazed by the students’ eagerness and engagement to learn about the soil. Making connections with the food they eat every day boosted their curiosity. At the same time endorsed their problem-solving skills and bringing them to life through wonderful artistic creations.
Just as soil allows the creation of life, art creates emotions and transforms lives.
We are a living expression of the soil, and we share the same future together, as its extinction is the extinction of life as we all know it. This movement aims to alert consciences to the urgency of protecting the soil. How can one remain indifferent? And what better way to do it than through art?

Due to climate change and other issues, young people are facing huge concerns about their future. They may sometimes feel hopeless and fearful. The Royal College of Psychiatrists (UK) says that eco-anxiety “should not be pathologised and is not a mental-disorder, and it should be considered a meaningful response to the climate and ecological emergency”. They suggest that being involved in taking action on these issues and being part of a wider community who are engaging in these issues are things that young people can do to feel better.
We hope that Save Soil – a global exhibition of art, poetry and more provides such an opportunity.
How can we help to save our soil
We may not be farmers, politicians or government officials, but we do have a voice.
We can use our voices and creative minds to make sure that everyone understands the importance of healthy soil. We can create art, write poetry, make music or put on a play to raise awareness. If enough of us speak up about soil, our governments will recognize that they have their citizens’ support to create lasting policies that will ensure the health of our soil for generations to come.
Join us in a global celebration of the soil that nourishes our lives – in an acknowledgement of its importance, and in a cry for its protection.
Let us make it happen.
