Globalization and global environmental issues, as well as unification of scientific research and teaching on the European Union and global levels require harmonization of technical languages, such as the terminology used in soil science. Important part of our technical language is soil description and classification. The long-term development of the unified system – World Reference Base for Soil Resources (WRB), is important challenge for teaching of soil science related subjects in Europe and the World. National/local focus in soil sciences teaching still dominates that complicates exchange of information, students and professionals. The aim of this conference is to present solutions for international education in soil science, elaborated within the Erasmus+ SYStem project, to present the new attempts to soil description and classification and as well to share ideas how to educate Young and Adults for the benefit of Societies and Environment, to raise awareness of global pedosphere-related threats like soil depletion, erosion, salinization and desertification. Participants’ experiences and thoughts related to soil science teaching would be a frame for discussions, both indoor and outdoor ones.
