The workshop aims to:
- Promote the general concepts of green chemistry and engineering and their practice;
- Encourage the exchange of ideas between stakeholders;
- Showcase innovations, products, and applications of green chemistry and engineering; and
- Provide information on best practices and experiences in the development of green chemistry curricula and service learning programs for secondary (e.g. high schools) and tertiary schools (e.g. colleges and universities).
Presenters at the event will include nationally recognized technical experts and champions in green chemistry and engineering. The appropriate audience for this event is diverse, including leading change agents and stakeholders within the public, education, and private sectors with an orientation to expand their knowledge, relationships and innovative capacity to support a more sustainable regional economy.
