Plants, People, Planet Symposium


The inaugural Plants, People, Planet symposium will highlight outstanding plant-based research in its broadest sense and celebrate everything new, innovative and exciting in plant sciences that is relevant to society and people’s daily lives.

Leading scientists and invited early career researchers will give talks based on seven broad themes: engaging people with plants, plants and society, plant conservation, plant diversity, plant genomics applications, plants and global change, and plant natural assets. Defra’s Chief Plant Health Officer, Nicola Spence, and the Director of the Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University, Ned Friedman, will both give keynote talks. Each session will conclude with an engaging Q&A panel, and there will be a poster session and symposium dinner on site at Kew
