International Year of Plant Health
July 15 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
The United Nations has declared 2020 as the International Year of Plant Health (IYPH). The year is a once in a lifetime opportunity to raise global awareness on how protecting plant health can help end hunger, reduce poverty, protect the environment, and boost economic development.
A large number of events – from exhibitions, to cultural performances, contests, panel discussions and conferences – are taking place across the world to mark the International Year of Plant Health 2020.
Whether you’re a business, NGO, journalist, media agency, or just a regular person, you can call for action to improve plant health and build a better future. Plan an event or spread the word, and let us know if you need our help.
There is a range of promotional materials available in several languages – a brochure, video, event banner, web or social media graphics.
Find out more about how you can take part and promote the International Year of Plant Health 2020 by reading the Communications Guide.
Whether you’re a professional or an amateur, send in your photos of healthy and unhealthy plants. You can win a trip to a plant health event or a photo mission. Winning photos will be showcased online and exhibited at FAO headquarters and at events around the world. Join the contest.
