Fascination of Plants Day

Date: 17.5.2012 


The first international "Fascination of Plants Day" 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.

Czech Republic prepared various activities for public and schools. These will take place in Prague, Brno, Olomouc, České Budějovice, Hradec Králové, Průhonice, Šumperk, Troubsko and Čelákovice. You can visit lectures, discussions, open days, botanical excursions, scientific workplaces, exhibitions, interactive expositions, greenhouses, parks or botanical gardens with guides. In the table you can find an overview of the organizing subjects. Deatiled information about the activities can be found here.
