We invite you to get involved by organising a public event or activity for Fascination of Plants Day. Our goal is to break the record of 1000 events organised in 2013. Events could include hands-on activities, talks, debates, nature walks or visits to farms or research facilities. Just look at the “Success Story” link or contact your national coordinator for ideas.
Most events will take place on 18th May 2017; however they may run any time from 2nd to 31st May.
For guidelines and to register an event, contact your national coordinator, Dario.Breitel@jic.ac.uk or the EPSO Coordinators,
The Fascination of Plants Day corporate logo and designs can be used to prepare, advertise and report on this day. They can be downloaded for free from the PR-toolbox under the Main Menu.
The media are invited to meet with scientists, farmers, politicians and industrialists, to learn about the latest cutting-edge research and breakthroughs in the world of plant science, and to explore the new applications plant science can offer.
Plants are fascinating. From the moment the sun hits them each morning, plants capture light rays which have reached them from outer space, transforming them into living, growing matter. They are critical to our social and environmental landscape now and into the future – join us to sow a seed of inspiration in the minds of others.
