We are all in this together: Why chemists and non-chemists must join forces to invent a future we can all be proud of
April 22, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Register now to join us virtually on Earth Day!
Global climate change, ocean plastics and toxics in the environment, we hear the issues loud and clear. We hear about green chemistry, sustainable chemistry, circular economy, and biomimicry as possible solutions. But how do they all fit together? John Warner will discuss how all approaches are necessary, and how everyone has opportunities and responsibilities to help bring about a future that we can be proud of. The stakes are too high for turf battles and semantic debates, we must all apply each of our unique and individual skills and talents, so that collectively we can succeed to create a future for generations to come.
Dr. John Warner, Director of Science and Innovation, Beyond Benign, Distinguished Professor of Green Chemistry, Monash University and Co-Founder of the field of Green Chemistry
