  • The Elsevier Foundation Chemistry for Climate Action Challenge
    After 5 successful editions of the Elsevier Foundation Green & Sustainable Chemistry Challenge, and thousands of proposals from around the world, we are proud to re-launch as the Chemistry for Climate Action Challenge. Climate change is the most important challenge affecting the future of our planet and it is essential that we take action. We also know that chemical sciences play a critical role in developing a sustainable future. UN Sustainable Development Goal 13, Climate Action, underscores the need to “[…] promote mechanisms for raising capacity for effective climate change-related planning and management in least developed countries, including focusing on women, youth and local and marginalized communities”. With a new focus on Climate Action, the Challenge also supports SDG5, Gender Equality, recognizing the pivotal role that women play in combating climate change. Projects submitted to the Challenge must integrate a gender dimension (such as addressing the role of women in adapting to climate shifts and participating in policy-making and leadership roles) into their projects. Before submitting your proposal, make sure to read the full description of the Challenge and the criteria with which the proposals will be evaluated. The Elsevier Foundation Chemistry for Climate Action Challengeis jointly run by the Elsevier Foundation and Elsevier’s chemistry journals team. The Challenge is open to individuals and organizations whose projects use green and sustainable chemistry solutions to tackle some of the developing world’s greatest sustainability challenges. Read more about Elsevier and green chemistry. The winning projects will receive a prize of €25,000 each.The winners will be announced at the 6th Green & Sustainable Chemistry Conference, 16-18 November 2021.

    ACARE's 2020 Annual Report
    Access the 2020 Annual Report for the African Center for Aquatic Research and Education here   "The year 2020 seemed longer than usual. When we looked up from our desks, we realized that it was not actually the 15th month of 2020, but March of 2021. The photo at the right is a perfect representation of our year of interactions. We are excited to share with you our successes and progress from 2020. Despite interacting with you only on screens and trapped in our basements, we grew, and we continue to do so. We look forward to another good year and anticipate we will be seeing you in person soon."

    The world needs the contribution of African scientists
    Check out this University World News article on the need for more African scientists.   According to authors Marincola and Kariuki, "African science matters not only because African people matter but also because people everywhere in the world will thrive only if science is driven by the best possible talent and initiative of all the peoples of the world."   Click the link below to read more: https://www.universityworldnews.com/post.php?story=20201015080006769&fbclid=IwAR3c8vP1yTAOTXW-bH2p_6ak4_mFqREKTBdN9iRlk5jEjz3C0v8a7_wtqtk
