Recently, the American Chemical Society was approached for potential partnership by Engineering for Change (E4C), a an online collaborative community created by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and the IEEE. E4C was founded in the spirit of engineers and scientists harnessing a common passion for designing and applying creative technical solutions to a broad range of significant humanitarian challenges. If you are interested in applying your chemistry to international development; including the global challenges of water, energy, health, structures, agriculture, sanitation, and information systems; you're encouraged to check out the site and let us know what you think.
The Sustainability Stakeholders Steering Group would be interested in your thoughts about:
- How should ACS and its members interact with this community and others like it?
- Might you be inclined to join the site, contributing to the Solutions Library and Bulletin Board?
- What possible connections do you see between E4C and your ACS Local Section, Technical Division, or other Society group?
