This year’s theme

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. FAO estimates that up to 40% of food crops are lost to plant pests and diseases annually. This leaves millions of people without enough food to eat and seriously damages agriculture.

Healthy plants are a critical resource because of the many ways they support life on Earth. They are the source of the air we breathe, most of the food we eat and natural protectors of the environment. Now, more than ever, is the time to celebrate and draw attention to these important ecosystems, so we are excited to announce a series of classes celebrating this theme that you can get a headstart on right now!

 

Exhibition special classes announced so far
