Swadeshi Science Movement (SSM) has been organizing the Swadeshi Science Congress (SSC) every year, since its inception in 1991, to motivate researchers and to preserve our traditional wisdom in diversified fields. Swadeshi Science Congress is a platform for scientists, technocrats, research scholars , professionals, students and enthusiastic science communicators to present, discuss and disseminate their scientific knowledge. It is a congregation for exchanging their ideas and to work for the development of society through the intervention of Science, Engineering and Technology. The congress encourages presentations in Malayalam also.
This year, Swadeshi Science Movement has joined hands with Sree Sankaracharya University of Sanskrit, Kalady, to organize the 25th Swadeshi Science Congress fromat Sree Sankaracharya University of Sanskrit, Kalady. Focal theme of this congress is “Healthy Soil for a Healthy Life”.
Soils are a finite natural resource and are non renewable on a human time scale. Soils are the foundation for food, animal feed, fuel and natural fiber production, supply of clean water, nutrient cycling and a range of ecosystem functions. The area of fertile soils covering the earth's surface is limited and increasingly subject to degradation, poor management and loss due to urbanization. Increased awareness of the life-supporting functions of soils is called for if this trend is to be reversed to enable and enhance the levels of food production necessary to meet the demands of an ever increasing population. The multiple role of soils often go unnoticed and this Science Congress will be a major platform for raising awareness on the importance of soils for food security and nutrition and essential eco-system functions.
