Since its creation in 2018, World Microbiome Day has been launched on all continents to raise awareness to the general public and researchers of the importance of microbial diversity for humans, animals, plants and planet health. #WorldMicrobiomeDay 2020 celebrates the diversity of diet and gut microbiota as a good indicator of better health and well-being.
