CCEW 2020 “Protecting Our Planet through Chemistry”

April 22, 2020

For the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, the 2020 Chemists Celebrate Earth Week theme is Protecting our Planet through Chemistry. As written in the introduction by K12 Director Kate Anderson, “Chemistry has a big role to play in improving our overall sustainability. Through scientific research and green chemistry (also known as the science of sustainability), chemists can not only help to clean up the planet, but also keep pollution from happening in the first place.” Our green chemistry community echos the importance of green chemistry through writing actives and think-pieces throughout the publication. Dr. John Warner is the featured Meg A. Mole interview. Access the entire publication here.
