The French writer Gustave Flaubert could not have been more correct when he said that “life must be continuing education“. The world continues spinning, whether we want to or not, so the best for our interests, both personal and professional, is to bet on continuous training as a way to stay updated and prepared for new circumstances.
For this reason, the Soil Science Society of America has developed a series of free technical seminars and seminars that may be of great interest to news followers of the CONSOLE project website.
The first set of seminars created by the Soil Science Society of America and the Institute of Soil Health (and sponsored by the Walton Family Foundation) will give us knowledges, skills, techniques and tools in order to assess soil health.

Translation of Visionary Science into Practice
A second meeting will be the “Translation of Visionary Science into Practice” to be held from November 8 to 11 of this year 2020.
This meeting is justified because currently, the media and information systems fail to inform the public. This may limit the scientific application of the real world and the adoption of new technologies. Non-scientists often determine the relevance, meaning, and potential value of new technologies and partnerships based on incomplete data and partial knowledge.
In these confusing times where “fake news” competes with facts, it has never been more important, or more urgently, to develop the skills and tools necessary to translate scientific knowledge for the public good and to do so with absolute transparency, clarity and Vision.
