David Wylie, ACS Green Chemistry Institute®
The mission of the American Chemical Society (ACS) – Green Chemistry Institute (GCI) is to advance sustainability through the implementation of green chemistry and engineering principles into all aspects of the chemical enterprise. The GCI actively promotes green chemistry education and focuses on increasing the understanding and awareness of green chemistry principles, alternatives, practices, and benefits. The ACS-GCI offers a number of outreach activities including green chemistry workshops at ACS national conferences and regional meetings, and runs a summer school on green chemistry. This workshop will highlight the variety of educational outreach activities and resources available through the ACS as well as highlight the online resources available from GCI (www.acs.org/greenchemistry) that will assist faculty in integrating green chemistry into their curriculum. Together, these resources will help to engage a diversified community, promote broader adoption of a greener curriculum, and sustain the development of new green chemistry educational materials; 3-hour session.
