    UN Millennium Development Goal # 7 - Ensure Environmental Sustainability

    Robert Rich

      In preparation for the S3G phone call on April 29, Brad Miller has suggested that we may wish to consider aligning our developing world activities with the UN Millennium Development Goal # 7 on "Ensure Environmental Sustainability".

       

      Since chemistry will be critical to many aspects of reaching this goal, linkage could provide focus to the initiative which we will discuss.

       

      Another possibility might be to tap into our developing country members and/or the international network of Green Chemistry chapters that ACS GCI has established for assistance.

       

      What do you think?
