I will be attending the Chemistry & Global Stewardship Plenary Session Sunday, Aug. 10, 3:00 – 6:30 p.m.Moscone Center, South - Gateway Ballroom. This is a great line up of speakers with unparralleled expertise in green chemistry. Stop by and take a photo with me.
This theme is focused on global aspects of the chemical enterprise related to sustainability of world resources, including green chemistry, the globalization of chemistry, and the responsibilities and opportunities chemists have to serve the broader public. In particular, divisional programming and special themed symposia will cover and discuss the role and interplay of science, technology, innovation, and economic development in world stewardship of precious, limited resources while providing physical and economic security for all world citizens.
Today four excellent plenary lectures from Pedro Alvarez, (Rice University), Paul Anastas, (Yale University), Walter Leitner, (RWTH Aachen University), and Heinz Leuenberger, (Environmental Management Branch United Nations Industrial Development Organization). Monday evening will feature the Fred Kavli Innovations in Chemistry Lecture by Joan Brennecke (University of Notre Dame) and the Kavli Foundation Emerging Leader in Chemistry Lecture by Ali Khademhosseini (Harvard University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology).
Throughout the week divisional programming will highlight the theme including the following theme-related symposia and workshops among others. Learn more about the program at:
