Africa in Profile is a cross-disciplinary initiative to raise awareness on the importance of Africa’s soil resources for reaching the Sustainable Development Goals. We are proud to launch a virtual version of our “Africa in Profile” exhibition, designed to show the diversity and beauty of Africa’s hidden soil treasures and their connection to people’s livelihood and culture and to nature and biodiversity.
This ‘Virtual Tour’ is a realization of KU Leuven and ISRIC with the kind support of the JRC and the Africa Museum. Curators of the exhibition are Karen Vancampenhout, Stephan Mantel, Arwyn Jones and Seppe Deckers.
