Today is 4th International Fascination of Plants Day, with over 700 events already registered around the 18th of May, and 52 countries signed up. Share your love for plants online using #PlantDay!
 
This year’s Fascination of Plants Day, a plant scientists’ initiative, has been already adopted by 52 countries worldwide. All information about this initiative can be accessed via www.epsoweb.org/fopd17  and is supported world-wide by a network of National Coordinators who voluntarily promote and disseminate the activity within their countries. A variety of over 710 plant-based outreach activities for all interested people from toddlers to grandparents were already uploaded online by scientific institutions, universities, botanical gardens, and museums, together with farmers and companies, who will open their doors for you to enjoy the interactive events.

This special day will put the fascinating world of plants itself in the spotlight: numerous activities on and around the Fascination of Plants Day, under the umbrella of the European Plant Science Organisation (EPSO — www.epsoweb.org) and the Global Plant Council, will plant virtual and constantly germinating seeds in the collective mind of the World Public recalling that plant science is of critical significance to the social, environmental and economic landscape now and in future.
