On May 18th, 2017 the world celebrated the Fascination of Plants Day.

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 produced 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.

Switzerland participates with several activities and contributes to the raising of awareness for the important of plants and the ecosystem services their supply to society.

The event is organized under the umbrella of EPSO (the European Plant Science Organisation), http://www.epsoweb.org
