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:

  1. How should ACS and its members interact with this community and others like it?
  2. Might you be inclined to join the site, contributing to the Solutions Library and Bulletin Board?
  3. What possible connections do you see between E4C and your ACS Local Section, Technical Division, or other Society group?
