Our Living Soil links two major international conferences being held at the Scottish Event Campus in Glasgow: COP26, the UN climate change summit, in 2021; and the World Congress of Soil Science, led by the British Society of Soil Science (BSSS) in August 2022.
Unfortunately the Society Annual General Meeting (AGM) scheduled for 3 September was unable to take place due to the lack of members either in attendance at the meeting or who had submitted their proxy in advance.
The AGM is essential for conducting formal business of the Society. Without it, we are unable to elect your representatives, or carry out essential business such as approving our accounts and appointing auditors.
In 2017, the Science Council launched the Technician Commitment, a framework for ensuring status and opportunity for technicians working in UK education and research institutions.
