11th International People-Plant Symposium (IPPS)

The Hózh’q Foundation, in partnership with the People Plant Council (PPC) and the International Society for Horticultural Science (ISHS), is delighted to announce the upcoming

11TH International People-Plant Symposium (IPPS)

The symposium will take place during the Floriade World Horticultural Exposition in Venlo, the Netherlands, on September 6th, 7th and 8th 2012. The theme of the IPPS 2012 is “Diversity: Toward a New Vision of Nature” and the focus will be on the benefits of nature on health and well-being. As there is a growing and dynamic use of nature and gardening as therapeutic tools, we intend to bring together individuals and groups from a vast array of sectors, all with a common interest in nature, health, horticulture, horticultural therapy and therapeutic horticulture.

“Diversity” provides a unique opportunity for individuals and organisations (businesses) to gain exposure and share with a large and focussed audience of like-minded people from across the world.

The organizing committee is currently raising funds to make the symposium an experience to remember! More information will be posted in the following months.

  • Please, forward this invitation to the people in your network.
  • Please use the Call for Proposal to actively participate in the 11th
  • IPPS in Venlo at www.hozhq.com
  • Note the abstract deadline April 9th 2012

Would you be so kind as to let us know whether you and/or your organisation are interested in joining us this year? You are welcome to send an e-mail to info@hozhq.com. We thank you in advance for your response and we will be looking forward to meeting you in Venlo.

One thought on “11th International People-Plant Symposium (IPPS)

  1. It is high time the humanity understands the importance of farming. Mahatma Gandhiji and Leo Tolstoy stressed on Bread Labour. Every one has to work for some time on the agricultural land for raising food grains to become eligible for consuming food. Only perhaps then we can be assured of safe and nutritious food free from chemicals. I support this initiative whole heartedly.
