The fifth international “Fascination of Plants Day” 2019 (FoPD 2019) will be launched by plant scientists across the world under the umbrella of the European Plant Science Organisation (EPSO).
The goal of this activity is to get as many people as possible around the world fascinated by plants and enthused about the importance of plant science for agriculture and sustainable production of nutritious food, as well as for horticulture, forestry and the production of plant-based non-food products such as paper, timber, chemicals, energy and pharmaceuticals. The role of plants in environmental conservation is also a key message.
FoPD event held in Mozambique at the Eduardo Mondlane University, on May 22nd and 23rd. Students and teachers from 4 public and private schools participated, along with the general public.
