The year ahead
This team will take us through the next year to June 2021 probably facing many changes in the industry but helping to address any issues with positivity. They will also be instrumental in preparing our celebrations of 20 years of the association’s existence next year.

Plants@work starts its new year with a busy virtual programme commencing with naming the Favourite Office Plant 2020 followed by National Plants at Work Week from 13 July when the promotion of plants in the workplace wherever it is and their benefits will be emphasised.

We will keep you informed of other events, virtual or physical, throughout the coming year.
