We invite you to plan an activity to mark the International Year of Plant Health (IYPH). Marathons, concerts, shows, farmer forums, festivals, fairs or tree planting ceremonies are all great ideas. You could also host a public lecture, panel or round table with government officials, educators, scientists, farmers and private sector representatives. Contact us to add your event to the list below.
