The June issue of "Nachrichten aus der Chemie" with many articles from the JungChemikerForum is out! ??

In the annual report you can find out more about the highlights from 2019: The FJS in Bremen, the Alpine Forum, career days as well as numerous workshops, excursions and lectures were carried out by young chemists with great commitment.
But also articles on our latest events can be found in the new issue. Including contributions to the exciting webinar "Chemists Fighting Covid-19 - A Global Conversation" and the excursion from JCF Leibzig to the Chempark Bitterfeld-Wolfen (held in January).

Take a quick look at the news - for GDCh members also online from June 4th at www.gdch.de/nachrichten ?❗️

We have teamed up with International Younger Chemists Network (IYCN) and European Young Chemists' Network (EYCN) to evaluate how young chemists around the world view the importance of sustainable chemistry in education and how it affects their future carreer choices. Please help us get a good picture of young chemists' needs in these times by taking part and sharing the survey amongst your colleagues and fellow students:

Here you can take part in the survey until 20th July 2020: https://forms.gle/4fTVA67oLagiZNy76  

- Less than 5 minutes
- German version available

 

As young chemists we represent roughly 1/3 of all GDCh members, so it is important that we set our pulse. We need as many participants in the GDCh members survey as possible who want to shape the future of the GDCh with us.

How should the future of the GDCh look like? What should be promoted? How and where can we grow? Help us to get a picture of the wishes of the members so we can bring the GDCh together forward.

German young chemist and former JCF board member Willis Collins Muganda took part in the #EUvsVirus Hackathon last week. He was interviewed by the EU media team in his function as mentor and youth ambassador in the civil society group. Check out what he has to say about the amazing youth engagement and why hackathons are not only about technology. We would like to thank all young chemists that continue to contribute to the fight against COVID-19 in every way they can.
