OUTREACH WORKING GROUP
The Outreach working group brings together the EPSO PR network to support communication and dissemination on Plant Science, and the organisation and animation of Fascination of Plants Day. The group serves as a mutual support network for PR officers, to exchange information about upcoming events, awards, grants, discoveries etc. In this way, working group members can broaden their sphere of influence by pooling and sharing information on plant science, and build dense networks across the EPSO membership base.
Fascination of Plants Day is a key international activity. Its goal is to stimulate as many people as possible around the world to become fascinated by plants and enthused about the importance of plant science for agriculture, in sustainable food production, as well as horticulture, forestry, and non-food products such as paper, timber, chemicals, energy, and pharmaceuticals. The role of plants in environmental conservation is also a key message.
The next meeting will take place on 26th October 2023. An agenda will be circulated to the working group members nearer the time. Please contact john.fitzgibbon(at)epsomail.org if you wish to attend. Minutes and slides from the April and June meetings are now available.
