The 2020 World Microbiome Day theme is ‘Diversity’-celebrating diversity of microbes, microbiome habitats, diets to feed and fuel microbiomes and the diversity among microbiome researchers.
Microorganisms (e.g. bacteria, fungi, viruses, archaea, etc) can be found everywhere in and on plants, animals, water, soil, food and humans. Within each of those habitats, microorganisms live together in communities called microbiomes. Microbiomes have an effect on (amongst others) human health; therefore, scientists are exploring how these communities of organisms co-exist with each other, with us and our environment.
World Microbiome Day 2020 is asking for your help to raise awareness of the importance of microbial diversity and through our actions to sustain and increase the diversity of microbes in humans, animals, soils and water throughout our world for the future of our planet.
