World Microbiome Day on the 27th of June is approaching and this year it is all about ‘Diversity’! Everyone is invited to join the celebrations around the vibrant world of microbes, diverse microbiome habitats, diets to feed and fuel microbes and the diversity among microbiome researchers and research fields. The aim of this day is to engage the general public in the dialogue on the contribution of microbes to our food system and human and planetary health.

There are several ways how you can participate:

  • Take part in one of the competitions, there is something for everyone!
  • Participate in an online event or organize your own online activity.
  • Show your love for microbes and become a #MicrobiomeAmbassador – share your story!
  • Test your microbe knowledge and learn something new in the several quizzes.

If you are organising an event, please keep in mind potential restrictions due to Covid-19. Therefore we encourage you to plan online activities.

CIRCLES will support the World Microbiome Day 2020 online and we will have some exciting news to share with you on that day. Follow us on Twitter @SciFoodHealth with the hashtag #CIRCLESEU to make sure you do not miss anything!
