Paasitorni Conference Centre, Helsinki, Finland


The first International Plant Health Conference will be convened in Helsinki on 28 June – 1 July 2021 on the theme “Protecting Plant Health in a Changing World”. Hosted by the government of Finland, the Conference will be one of the key events of the International Year of Plant Health. For the first time, a forum will discuss global scientific, technical and regulatory plant health issues and at the same time advocate plant health issues to the media and public.

The following four themes will be discussed in a series of workshops, scientific and regulatory symposia and side events:

  • plant health and international trade;
  • the potential of plant health to contribute to a hunger-free world;
  • plant health’s contribution to climate action and the preservation of life on land;
  • plant health and development.
