Summer School on Sustainable Chemistry for Sustainable Development – And Agriculture

From 12 to 16 July 2021 the 7th S3C Summer School on Sustainable Chemistry for Sustainable Development took place in a virtual format again due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Type: Conference Workshop
Topic: Education Research
Length: 5 Days
Start Date - Time: 12.07.2021 - 12:00 AM
End Date: 16.07.2021 - 12:00 AM
Location: > >

In 16 lectures and 3 workshops boundaries, challenges and opportunities of implementing sustainable approaches, methods and regulations for a sustainable use of chemicals in general and in the field of agriculture were elaborated as well as insights given into the current European sustainability strategy and the UNEP’s Green and Sustainable Chemistry Manuals. Furthermore, education in sustainable chemistry as an integral part of a future sustainable development was also part of the Summer School. The unique study programmes M.Sc. Sustainable Chemistry and MBA Sustainable Chemistry Management were presented.

18 experts from renowned Universities, public authorities and institutes contributed again to this Summer School by sharing their knowledge in this field. In three workshops the participants learned more about a systems-thinking approach in sustainable chemistry and agriculture. In one workshop they worked in groups to design and develop a Systems-Oriented Concept Map Extension (SOCME) for a specific example of agriculture, in another they dealt with the question whether smart, integrated approaches can actually provide solutions to add more value to agricultural value chains and make them more resource and energy efficient and carbon neutral. In the third workshop central concepts related to sustainable agribusiness and the application of waste-to-food approaches were elaborated with emphasis on the optimisation of production and consumption, development of novel preservation technologies enabling the storage of nutrients in food biomass in a multiyear scale, the role of artificial intelligence as well as related ethical aspects.

ACS Campaign for a Sustainable Future: Zero Hunger Summit
In 2015, the United Nations set the goal of achieving “Zero Hunger” - ending world hunger and providing universal food security by 2030. Unfortunately, climate change, the COVID-19 pandemic, and the war in Ukraine have made this ambitious goal even more challenging. But with 690 million people suffering from hunger worldwide and a growing world population, work must be done now to build sustainable food systems for all.

Chemistry and engineering have long had an essential part to play in the fight against hunger. From the invention of chemical fertilizers over a century ago to carbon capture technology being developed today, innovation has been critical for increasing the quantity and quality of food. But what role do chemistry and engineering play in improving food security now, and how do they interact with sustainability, economic forces, and government policy?

On December 5-8, the American Chemical Society is hosting the Zero Hunger Summit. Part of the Campaign for a Sustainable Future, this free online event will explore how chemistry and engineering can contribute towards the goal of “Zero Hunger.” Experts from government, industry, academia, and nonprofit organization will present on a wide range of topics, including:
-Climate Impacts on Agriculture: Adaptation & Reducing Crop Stress
-Impacts of Agriculture on Climate: Mitigation of Greenhouse Gasses 
-Optimizing Crop Production
-Sustainable Food Packaging and Reducing Waste
