For the third time Umeå Plant Science Centre is coordinating the Fascination of Plants Day on a local level in Umeå.

This year the event will take place on the Arts Campus, Umeå University.

Welcome to a day in the fascinating world of plants, indoors and outdoors on the Arts Campus. In a few hours you can meet plant scientists and other plant experts, participate in experiments, field trips, listen to short presentations and follow the beauty of plants in presentations and exhibitions.

The Fascination of Plants Day is an international initiative of European Plant Science Organization ESPO organised at many different places worldwide. The day is organized for the third time even in Umeå. The Fascination of Plants Day will inspire and fascinate about plants and demonstrate the importance of plant research for the environment and nature conservation, energy, agriculture, forestry and our own benefit.

In Umeå Fascination of Plants Day is a collaboration between several organisations: Umeå University, the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU), Umeå Municipality, Arboretum Norr, and Bonsai Sällskapet.

This year the day is arranged in collaboration with Bildmuseet and Sliperiet, and will be part of Umeå University's 50th anniversary and SLU's 100th anniversary.
