Advocacy and Visibility

The milestone of the Living Earth campaign (LIVE) is the Soil4Life Manifesto, first drafted on 2019 by a group of young Soil Ambassadors during an international Soil Protection and Management training led by CCIVS: it is a call to action that was developed during a two-year participatory process, addressed to global leaders and decision-makers to support the transition to a life-sustaining, healthy and thriving environment – of which the ground we walk on is the foundation. 

The Soil4Life Manifesto is a powerful tool for advocacy, a call to positive action and good practice on our living Earth. CCIVS recognizes and acknowledges the work of people actively engaged in restoring balance and justice, who work the land and together regenerate soil and ecosystems, as well as those who volunteer for this essential cause.

CCIVS aims to bring our strong expertise in the field of ecosystem restoration and living soils conservation to increase and strengthen shared knowledge and to reach a wider audience for a positive and long-term impact. It is for this reason The Living Earth Campaign contributes to the following two UN Decades:

The United Nations launched the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration to promote its environmental goals and to facilitate global cooperation for the restoration of degraded and destroyed ecosystems.It runs from the World Environment Day 2021 through 2030, deadline for the Sustainable Development Goals and the timeline scientists have identified as the last chance to prevent catastrophic climate change. UN Decade follows a proposal for action by over 70 countries from all over the world. 

UN Decade strategy:
The UN Resolution related (A/RES/73/284):

On the 5th December 2017, the United Nations declared that a Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development, the Ocean Decade, would be held from 2021 to 2030.

The call to action is to co-design and co-deliver a wide range of actions on the most pressing needs. The solutions could include new policies, management frameworks, innovations or technologies, training materials developed at local, national, regional and global level.

Join the movement:

Both UN initiatives promote partnership and cooperation as ways to work together on similar topics, co-design solutions and share best practices.
