Fascination of Plants Day 2015
The third international Fascination of Plants Day 2015 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.
Everybody is welcome to join this initiative!
EPSO invites you to organize for the 18th of May 2015 a fascinating activity related to plants attracting and interacting with the public. EPSO's goal is to break the record of 1000 events you organized in 2013. May 18th 2015 will be the Fascination of Plants Day itself and most events will be organised for this day. In addition events will be organised throughout the month of May 2015. Just contact your national coordinator (find at www.plantday.org > countries > your country > your NC contact details on right top) or the EPSO Coordinators Trine Hvoslef-Eide firstname.lastname@example.org and Przemysław Wojtaszek email@example.com to discuss and get guidelines for using the Fascination of Plants Day.
The Fascination of Plants Day corporate design can be downloaded for free at the "PR-toolbox" on the Fascination of Plants Day webpage, see Main Menu.
We invite many others to join in, ranging from schools to horticulturists and anyone who feels to have a suited contribution to 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 and 2013 with a variety of plant-based events for all the family - just look at the "Success Story" links in the given countries by clicking "Countries".
The media are invited to join in, and scientists, farmers, politicians and industrialists will discuss with them and present the latest state-of-the-art research and breakthroughs in the plant science world and explore all of the new potential applications plant science can offer.
The Fascination of Plants Day will be backed up by a range of events in public spaces, theatres, cafes, central city squares and parks designed to get everyone thinking about plants.
