The Awareness Raising Workshop series was attended by the participants selected by the Partnering Centers who have the capacity to disseminate green chemistry in their respective countries. A one-day event focused on raising awareness on green chemistry and its importance, and which allowed networking among green chemistry experts.
This course is intended for undergraduates with no prior knowledge of green chemistry and aims to explore how the principles of green chemistry can help resolve global human health and environmental issues. Students will learn to identify different environmental and human health problems, and consider the appropriate solutions using green chemistry tools covered in the course. Upon completion of the course, students will have learned how green chemistry is a fine balance of different concepts and disciplines, including sustainability, chemistry, toxicology, and molecular design.
TRAINING THE FACILITATOR
The Training the Facilitator Workshop was attended by participants selected by the Partnering Centers who have the influence to disseminate green chemistry. It was a 5-day event that expanded on the concepts covered in the one-day workshop, including case studies. The workshop provided participants with skills and materials to disseminate green chemistry.
The Educational Videos series aims to provide a didactic and fun way to learn more about The Global Green Chemistry Initiative and about Green Chemistry as a whole. With the participation of Dr Paul Anastas, the videos are about many of the workshops presentation topics and give real life illustrations to the discussed cases.
The Yale-UNIDO Technology Compendium will feature Green Chemistry and Green Engineering solutions and technologies from around the world. With assistance from the Green Chemistry Community, we are compiling emerging and commercially available Green Chemistry solutions and technologies to facilitate worldwide access for academia, industry, and government agencies.
