Resources

Want to know more fun facts about the microbiome and its diversity, ongoing microbiome research or other microbiome activities? Or even use it for the activities you organise with and for others?
We have a whole selection of resources that inspire and empower you to learn more about the microbiome. Feel free to use them for your own activities!
Disclaimer: World Microbiome Day (WMD) is a bottom-up movement that aims to educate and empower everyone with knowledge on the microbiome. We encourage you to use the logo and visual identity for your own social media channels or promote your education and engagement activities. It’s there to help you! However, the WMD organisers do not endorse any products or companies and discourage the use of the WMD visual identity for the promotion of such purposes. Further, we regularly check our resource page section to ensure that all information is up to date and still relevant, but cannot always guarantee being able to immediately respond to scientific advancements in the microbiome field. Finally, the information contained in this page should not be considered medical or legal advice and in no case should replace them.

Happy #WorldMicrobiomeDay 2021! 🎉 Let’s celebrate all the ways #microbes help us in our daily lives, their diversity & raise awareness about how they can contribute to a sustainable future. Find out more at https://worldmicrobiomeday.com/
🤯 #DYK that if you weighed all the living organisms in the ocean, 90% of that weight would be from microbes?
🦠🌊 Microbes are essential for a thriving ocean ecosystem! Just because they can’t be seen by the naked eye does not mean they are not important.
Many rivers & soils are contaminated due to the excessive usage of chemical #pesticides & #fertilizers. It is time to look for other alternatives! ⌛️
🦠 With their ability to naturally boost plant growth & control pathogens, #microbes could be a great replacement! #biopesticides #WorldMicrobiomeDay #Microbiomes4Life
Producing more food with fewer resources may seem too good to be true, but farmers have trillions of potential partners that can help achieve this ambitious goal.
Those partners are microbes! 💪 #WorldMicrobiomeDay
#Microbes have played a pivotal role in enabling life on Earth as we know it.
Without their efforts in eating up carbon dioxide & producing oxygen by developing photosynthesis, our world would have no breathable air, and it would be extremely hot! 🔥 #WorldMicrobiomeDay
🦠 Microbes make life on earth possible. We must learn not just how microbes affect #climatechange but also how they will be affected by climate change and other human activities to achieve an environmentally sustainable future.
The unseen world of #microbes is filled with untapped potential! 🦠
More and more we are recognising them as a huge natural resource that can contribute to re-establish a healthy balance between nature, #foodsystems & people. The future of the planet also depends on microbes! 🌏
Ever wondered how your #compost is turned into that nutrient-rich soil where plants grow on?
These are #microbes working their magic!🦠♻️
Microbes can convert waste into useful products such as compost, biofuel, biogas or bioplastics.
🤔 Slowly but surely, scientists are beginning to discover that microbes produce a variety of health-promoting compounds that could serve as potential therapeutics in the future. Also, by eating fermented foods that are full of live microbes, we might benefit our #gutmicrobiome and boost our health!
