EPPO Communication kits
Don't Risk It!
In 2013, EPPO published a poster 'Don't Risk It' together with an accompanying leaflet. The objective of these documents is to raise public awareness about the risks of moving plants and their associated pests during international travel and to encourage responsible behaviour. It is primarily intended that the poster should be displayed in airports or any other sites where international travellers will see it (e.g. seaports, railway stations, travel agencies, embassies). This poster was endorsed officially by the EPPO Executive Committee in April 2013 and circulated to all EPPO member countries in May 2013. National Plant Protection Organizations (NPPOs) are strongly encouraged to contact airport authorities or any other relevant bodies so that the poster can be displayed as widely as possible.
Since 2013, many NPPOs have translated the EPPO poster and leaflet and used them in their national information campaigns. Share their experience!
The EPPO Secretariat would very much appreciate to continue receiving more feed-back from NPPOs about the use of the poster and leaflet.
