We are pleased to announce our summer school, for five exciting days of an interactive program with creative and inspiring minds on the Pokljuka plateau, Slovenia. 

We invite members of the Youth Parliament (YPAC) of the Alpine Convention (AC) to join and learn about soils, how soil is vital for humans, nature, environment and entire life in the terrestrial ecosystems. Soils, soil diversity, soil ecosystem services and soil protection are the main topics that will be presented to the youth in an interesting and understandable way by an international group of professors of soil science and experts – Links4Soils project partners:
