Around the world, chemistry plays an increasingly critical role in creating a sustainable future, enabling communities in low resource settings to solve development issues with their own expertise. After 5 successful editions of the Elsevier Foundation Green & Sustainable Chemistry Challenge and receiving thousands of proposals from around the world on innovative chemical science research that helps the environment and low-resource communities, we have refocused our efforts and we are proud to launch the Elsevier Foundation Chemistry for Climate Action Challenge.
Climate change is the most important challenge for the future of our planet, affecting every country on every continent, and it is essential that we take action. Climate change is not only causing rising sea levels and changing weather patterns, but is also disrupting national economies and affecting lives.
Do you have an idea for sustainable chemistry project which can help advance Climate Action in the Global South?
Submit your project to the Elsevier Foundation Chemistry for Action Challenge. Deadline: 1 August 2021.
The challenge is open to individuals or organizations around the world for projects in any field of green and sustainable chemistry linking to SDG13 Climate Action. Projects must be applicable in developing countries, and have a strong Gender Equality focus. The two winning projects will each receive EUR 25,000.
