On May 18th, 2012 the fascinating world of the plants will present itself in the limelight. Therefore, the European Plant Science Organisation (EPSO - ) created the "Fascination of Plants Day", the international day of the plant. The International Day of the plant has the goal to plant as many thoughts into the minds of people around the world: plants and the understanding of plants have always been and are still irreplaceable for the benefit of past, present and future generations, as well as for the understanding and the sustainable use with nature.

Information about this initiative can be found on the website . You can also find a list of national and international activities.
