All the elements that make up life on the planet we live on are in a relationship with each other, and in this relationship, soil is of great importance as the source of all terrestrial life, despite being the thinnest layer of the Earth. The topraktema.org website, designed by TEMA Foundation with the contributions of our donor Mr. Turan Demiraslan, was designed to contribute to the development of literacy about the importance of soil in our lives. The infographic-based website includes information on the structure of soil, how it is formed, its importance in the ecosystem, its functions, the reasons for its disappearance, what awaits life as a result of its loss, the measures to be taken to protect soil and all information on sustainable soil management.
