In the light of increasing pressures placed on the planet by humanity, the need to develop a cadre of science professionals who are dedicated to developing and implementing green chemistry practices is more important than ever before. This Workshop is for educators and scientists in the chemical and life sciences who strongly believe in the incorporation and integration of the fundamentals of Green Chemistry in the education and the laboratory.
This one-day workshop will be a combination of lectures, discussion, and demonstration of Green Chemistry laboratory experiments. The speakers in the workshop will present the latest trends in the field of Green Chemistry based on their own experiences in either industry or academia.
During the lecture sessions, speakers will discuss the adoption of Green experiments and lecture materials, address the challenges and opportunities in Green Chemistry education and the need for incorporating Green Chemistry in education. They will provide strategies for designing, adapting and incorporating new green experiments. Ample time will be made available for participants to discuss their own plans for adopting Green Chemistry with the speakers and fellow participants.
Educational material used in teaching the green chemistry and laboratory experiments will be distributed during the workshop, including our recently published monograph, "Green Chemistry Experiments,” published by Green Chemistry Network Centre, ISBN: 81-904152-5-5.
The participants will be offered membership of Green Chemistry Network for which they need to apply on the prescribed format.
All expenses, including tea and lunch, for the participants during the day-long workshop will be provided by the organizers. However, a nominal fee of Rs.500 will be charged towards registration from participants. Apart from this, participants are expected to cover their own travel and lodging expenses.
In case of sufficient entries, we will add a Poster Session on Green Chemistry Education during the workshop. If you have designed any green chemistry experiment and are interested in presenting your work, please contact us.
To apply, please send a letter of interest along with CV to the Organizing Secretary of the workshop. Applications for participation must be received by October 15, 2010.
