International Fascination of Plants Day 2015

On May 18th, 2015 the world celebrates the Fascination of Plants Day. The event is organized under the umbrella of EPSO (the European Plant Science Organisation).

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.

In 2015, the Swiss Plant Science Web will again coordinate all activities for this special day in Switzerland. Link to all PlantDay 2015 events in Switzerland

All institutions and companies are welcome to join this initiative by offering events for the public!

We invite you to organize for the 18 May 2015 a fascinating activity related to plants attracting and interacting with the public. 18 May will be the very Fascination of Plants Day and most events will be organised for this day. In addition, where this is not suitable, events will be organised throughout the weeks of 3-31 May 2015.

The SPSW will disseminate the information about your event through its media channels, it will be posted on the EPSO plantday 2015 website and the major media who are informed about the planned events.

In exchange we kindly ask that you use the official logo of the International Fascination of Plants Day, also link your event to the SPSW as the national coordination unit.
