The biennial international Fascination of Plants Day (FoPD) is an event encouraging people from around the world become fascinated and enthusiastic about plants. Coordinated by the European Plant Science Organization (EPSO), it takes place globally on May 18, every uneven year since 2012.
In 2019, for it’s fifth edition, FoPD was a huge success gathering 862 events across 52 countries! Thanks to our 56 national coordinators, thousands of enthusiastic event organisers, partners, 5 national patronages and sponsors we have created real success stories. To know more about them, check our Fascination of Plants Day Success Stories 2019 publication.
In 2021, Fascination of Plants Day will be back for a new adventure. While waiting for its launch you can follow us on Twitter (@PlantDay18May), Instagram (@fascinationofplantsday), Facebook, Youtube and on our website: http://www.plantday18may.org
We welcome you to join us in preparing for Fascination of Plants Day 2021! Get organizing events in your country and keep tweeting about plants (#PlantsDay, #FoPD). We look forward to seeing you all in 2021!
