The 4th international "Fascination of Plants Day" 2017 will be launched under the umbrella of the European Plant Science Organisation (EPSO)

The goal of this activity 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.

Who can attend?

Everybody is welcome to join this initiative. Many plant science institutions, universities, schools, botanical gardens, and museums, together with farmers and companies, have opened their doors at the Fascination of Plants Day 2012, 2013 and 2015 with a variety of plant-based events for all the family - just look at the “Success Story” for inspiration.

Organise an activity

EPSO aim to break the record of 1000 events organised in 2013. Fascination of Plants Day is on 18th May, with most activities taking place on the day, but events can be organised for around May or 2017.
