7th Summer School on Sustainable Chemistry for Sustainable Development: 12.07.2021 - 16.07.2021

Focus Topic: Sustainable Chemistry and Agriculture

 

At this Summer School we will take a closer look on agriculture to discuss the opportunities and benefits of sustainable chemistry in this field.

Agriculture is an important source of food supply but also contributes to sustaining and driving the economy.

On the one hand numerous products of the chemical industry such as fertilizers or pesticides are intentionally used in agriculture, which comes along with an increasing contamination of the surface and ground water, soil and air. Rising resources and energy demand are causing overall damages to the ecosystems (e.g. biodiversity loss, water pollution, climate change). In addition, agricultural products could be contaminated by pesticides, which can cause negative health effects on humans.

On the other hand agriculture increasingly provides raw materials for the chemical industry. Hence, agriculture is a crucial field of action for sustainable development including sustainable chemistry. Therefore, this year’s Summer School will provide general information and the latest insights on sustainable chemistry itself in the first part and focus on contribution of sustainable chemistry to sustainable agriculture and vice versa in the second part of the Summer School.

The exchange of the participants' experiences always is at the core of the discussions in the lectures, which are complemented by workshops. The Summer School aims at students, postgraduates and young professionals dealing with or being interested in the topic of sustainable chemistry as a crosscutting issue.

The Summer School consists of two parts:

Part 1: General Concepts and Approaches of Sustainable Chemistry

  •  Concept of green and sustainable chemistry
  •  Reference points of intervention: national - European - international
  •  Practical implementation of sustainable chemicals management in the field of international cooperations and development cooperations

Part 2: Sustainable Chemistry and Agriculture

Among others, we will welcome the following experts:

  • Dr. Anja Klauk, Federal Environment Agency, Germany
  • Dr. Xenia Trier, European Environment Agency, Denmark
  • Prof. Dr. Stephen Matlin, Imperial College London, England
  • Prof. Dr. Dr. Vania Zuin, currently Administrative Professor at our institute
  • Prof. Dr. Borhane Mahjoub, Associate Professor in ISA-CM, IRESA, University of Sousse, Tunisia
