Connecting Chemistry with Society

Green and Sustainable Chemistry Education for Tomorrow's Citizens of the World (#334)

Green chemistry education is an opportunity to prepare tomorrow's citizens of the world for the sustainability challenges our planet faces. This Symposium strives to bring together industrial and academic scientists and chemical educators who are engaged in promoting an understanding of Green Chemistry and Sustainability at all stages of education. Examples include, but are not limited to, strategies for: reaching current and future secondary school teachers; bringing sustainable chemistry to the attention of public policy makers; teaching the non-scientist via Green Chemistry education seminars and coursework; and promoting a chemical understanding for people with limited scientific training. The Symposium organizers hope to attract points of view from educational institutions, industrial educational programs, initiatives from NGO's, and from Green Chemistry Centers from around the world.
