Chemistry and Global Stewardship
This theme is focused on global aspects of the chemical enterprise related to
sustainability of world resources, including green chemistry, the globalization of
chemistry, and the responsibilities and opportunities chemists have to serve the broader
public.
Divisional programming and special themed symposia will cover the role and interplay
of science, technology, innovation, and economic development in world stewardship of
precious, limited resources while providing physical and economic security for all world
citizens.
Where possible international perspectives will be provided related to both areas of
critical need, such as the supply of clean water and energy to all citizens of the world,
and to overcoming the limitations or restrictions of raw materials for products which
lead to improved quality of life.
Methods to reach out to the public to better educate students and all citizens on the
nature and uses of chemistry and efforts to enhance cooperation among chemists
around the globe will be highlighted.

Communicating science to the public is an essential
skill for scientists. In this symposium/workshop,
C&EN reporters and invited speakers will give
practical tips to help scientists make their work
accessible to the general public, including through
social media. Emphasis will be on policy issues that
must be informed by science. Nontraditional means
of communication will be explored through hands-on
activities or demonstrations.

13th IUPAC INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS
OF PESTICIDE CHEMISTRY
August 10-14, 2014, San Francisco, California
Stewardship, Regulation and Outreach Pesticide
Issues in International Trade, Food Safety & Security
Goal of the symposium is a
discussion of pesticide human
health risk from the farm gate
to the table in order to
establish a common
understanding of how
pesticide use practices are
related to both international
trade and national food safety
and food security objectives.

August 10-14, 2014, San Francisco, California
World Crop Protection Chemistry Institute:
Developing Global Leaders for Research, Regulation
and Stewardship in the 21st Century
The purpose of this 1-day workshop is to
bring together global crop protection
chemistry leadership from academia,
industry, government and NGO’s to:
• Examine current state with respect to
research and regulatory leadership
development,
• Discuss unmet needs and future changes
in crop protection chemistry that will
challenge current approaches, and
• Develop a set of specific recommendations
for ensuring tomorrow’s crop protection
chemistry leaders have a well-rounded,
science-based and globally informed
approach.

Alternatives to chemicals facing critical
sustainability constraints
Chemists love to use elements and molecules in new and
interesting ways in their pursuit of “good science.” Novel
catalysts, unique properties, intellectual property protection or
creation, publication in prestigious journals, etc. Such drivers
have spurred chemists down this path since the industrial
revolution. It could be argued, however, that “good science” turns
a blind eye towards the environmental, social and economic
implications that known reserves of critical materials are being
rapidly depleted and dispersed in products in such a way that
makes recycling and reuse difficult if not nearly impossible using
current separation technologies. This session is intended to
highlight issues associated with materials in critical supply and
change the fallacious “good science” argument to one of a
pursuit of the best possible science – science that is sustainable.
