Día Internacional de la Fascinación por las Plantas

El sexto Día Internacional de la Fascinación por las Plantas se celebra mundialmente bajo el auspicio de la Organización Europea para la Ciencia de las Plantas (EPSO).

El objetivo de esta actividad es que el mayor número de personas en el mundo queden fascinados por las plantas y entusiasmados sobre la importancia de la ciencia de las plantas para la agricultura, la producción sustentable de alimentos, la forestación y todos los productos derivados de las plantas como el papel, la madera, productos químicos, energía y productos farmacéuticos. El papel de las plantas en la conservación del medioambiente será otro de los mensajes claves.

In this year’s FoPD in Uruguay, the celebration focused on educating children about the wonders of plants. Lots of children visited the Botanic Garden in Montevideo where experts and guides told them about the importance of plants and shared interesting stories related to this park. The guides and children explored the Botanic Garden, discovering and enjoying exotic plants and learning lots of new things about common plants.
