1 session (4 hours), presentations, active discussions and audience participation 


Today’s pressing cross-border issues cannot be solved without the vital work of practitioners of the chemical sciences. However, many policymakers lack the technical expertise to make fully informed decisions on pressing issues like climate change, chemical security, and other top priorities. This interactive workshop will help participants to gain the tools needed to discuss these topics and more with non-scientists. Specific topics addressed will include chemical security, ethics, and sustainability (particularly the UN Sustainable Development Goals). Please register here:
