Team Sustainability

Sustainable development is a timely topic with high societal relevance and chemistry plays an essential part in it. JCFs "Team Sustainability" deals with the fundamental question: "What can we as young chemists do to create a more sustainable future and how can we inspire others to act?". The team has already discussed a lot of ideas and initiated projects for the cause and we are always looking for more creative ideas. We welcome new, motivated team members who want to take part in the realization of these ideas. Our current projects include a sustainability guideline, a survey to evaluate the adequacy of sustainability in education and a white paper that represents the opinions of young chemists on the matter in the context of the UN SDGs

On the 28th of January, the EYCN hosted a panel discussion on "Sustainability in  Education - Empowering Chemists to Act" in collaboration with IYCN and JCF. The discussion is now available online and reflects on the results of the joint survey on "Sustainability in Chemical Education". The dialogue as well as the presentations of the panelists leave all particapants, no matter which background, with plenty of resources to take it in to their own hands to make a change in education at university level for a more sustainable future. Certainly worth a watch if you are looking for ways to drive change and be inspired!
