Fascination of Plants Day 2019


The International «Fascination of Plants Day 2019» (FoPD) is held on 18 May 2019. The event is organized under the umbrella of the European Plant Science Organization EPSO, www.epsoweb.org

This global, coordinated activity aims at highlighting the crucial importance of plants and plant science for society and the planet.

The goal of this day is to get as many people as possible around the world fascinated by plants and enthused about the importance of plant science for agriculture, in sustainably producing food, as well as for horticulture, forestry, and all of the non-food products such as paper, timber, chemicals, energy, and pharmaceuticals. The role of plants in environmental conservation will also be a key message.
