Unser Boden, unser Erbe

2019 | 79 min

Do you actually know what is happening under your feet? The thin layer of humus in the soil provides all the people in the world with food, clean drinking water and clean air. And it can save the climate. After all, healthy soils are the largest reservoir of greenhouse gases after the oceans and contribute significantly to reducing CO2. But to form ten centimetres of fertile soil, our planet needs more than 2,000 years. And yet we use our soils as if they were inexhaustible. Our food source is endangered – by us humans! What does this mean for the future? How do agriculture and society have to change in order for us to pass on a living world with living soils to our children?
