About the Symposium

Our 7th annual symposium is titled "Frontiers in Green Chemistry: Challenges in the Anthropocene" with the intention of focusing on the advances in chemistry and chemical engineering towards responding to the Anthropocene. The symposium is designed to connect students, post-doctoral fellows and faculty members interested in Green Chemistry with current leaders in the field to discuss advances in chemical processes and the future of green chemistry.

The symposium is a two-day event which will take place on May 16th and 17th, 2019. All symposium events will take place on the University of Toronto - St. George Campus.

The symposium is also part of the national Science Odyssey event this year!

Highlights of this year's Symposium include:
Keynote lecture by Prof. C.J. Li, McGill University
A hands-on case study
An optional crash course on the fundamentals of Green Chemistry
A research poster session (three prizes will be awarded) and networking events
Seminar talks on innovations in green chemistry
An excellent chance to make connections with current sustainability experts for future job opportunities
