BRICKS FOR LIFE, prepared by Fossick Project for the FAO’s GSP Global Symposium on Soils for Nutrition (26-29 July 2022, FAO HQ). It tells the story of a modern adventure in the nutrient cycle’s world, from the soil below our feet to the table.

In the framework of the Global Symposium on Soils for Nutrition (GSOIL4N), held at FAO HQ on 26-29 July 2022, the FAO’s Global Soil Partnership produced the video “Healthy soils: the foundation of healthy food and a better environment”. The video aims to raise awareness on the risks associated with soil nutrient imbalance and soil fertility loss while highlighting the role of soil fertility in producing sufficient, safe, and more nourishing food for healthier plants, animals, and people.

This special song was prepared by Ms Serena Brancale specifically for the celebration of the 10-year anniversary of the Global Soil Partnership (GSP). It highlights the beauty of soil, and takes us on a journey through the lives of farmers, scientists and those who protect our soils.

This video message was shown at the Global Soil Partnership Plenary (23 May 2022). At the closing of the opening session, Grammy Award and Golden Globe winning Artist, Laura Pausini delivered a strong message for soil protection and greeted the GSP Plenary on its tenth anniversary”.
