World Chemistry Leadership Meeting: Accelerating the Contributions of Chemistry to Sustainable Development

46th IUPAC General Assembly

While celebrating the International Year of Chemistry in 2011, the World Chemistry Leadership Meeting will be an occasion for sharing the vision of how chemistry can make sustainable development a reality by bringing together academia, government, NGOs, and industry.
This important meeting, as part of the 46th International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry's (IUPAC) General Assembly, will focus on activating the chemistry community to make a significant contribution at the Rio + 20 conference in 2012 organised by the UN Commission on Sustainable Development.

The approach of the meeting is to engage chemistry in new and innovative ways in cooperation with those with societal interests, including those from the relevant UN agencies, and those from industry who will develop the key technologies for tomorrow.
