The fascinating world of plants will be once more in the spotlight thanks to the celebration of the seventh international Fascination of Plants Day on and around May 18th 2024.

This global campaign aims to plant virtual and constantly germinating seeds in the collective intelligence of the public, recalling that plant science is of critical significance to social, environmental and economic issues on our Earth today and in the future.

Scientific institutions, universities, botanical gardens and museums together with schools, farmers and companies will offer a variety of plant-based interactive events and activities for all interested people from toddlers to grandparents.

Check the FoPD website  for further details and find your event around 18 May 2024, and follow us on our social media accounts:
