The fascinating world of plants will be once more in the spotlight thanks to the celebration of the seventh Fascination of Plants Day on and around May 18th 2024 with interactive events being organised until November 2024.

This coordinated activity aims to plant virtual and constantly germinating seeds in the collective mind of people, 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.
