History of the IPPS
The previous International People Plant Symposium took place in Nova Scotia, Canada in 2010. For the first time the symposium will be held in Europe. The symposium will take place at the Floriade World Horticultural Expo in Venlo.
Some 300 participants are to be expected during this three day symposium. For this unique event much publicity will be spread in the media.
The purpose of the symposium is to create a platform for therapists, scientists, educational institutions and businesses. Furthermore IPPS 2012 intends to develop an international perspective on the topic of the people plant relationships. It will be a dynamic and colourful experience by means of presentations, lectures, discussions and workshops. A cultural program will add lustre to the total event. It will connect with the wider program of the Floriade at various moments and in different ways.
The symposium will be challenging for anyone interested in the profound relationship between nature and humans, such as horticultural therapists, therapeutic horticulturalists, eco-therapists, clinical and environmental psychologists, coaches, counsellors, trainers, human resource professionals, etc.
