The goal of this project is to promote green chemistry through education for elementary schools, higher education, and industries. The promotion of green chemistry is based on the "National Chemical Substances Management Policy Framework", which sets five major goals, including "national governance", "risk reduction", "capacity management", "knowledge building", and "cross-border management", to achieve the vision of "effective chemical substance management for a healthy and sustainable environment". This project is designed to build green chemistry teaching materials for elementary schools, teaching materials for general education courses in colleges and universities, teaching materials for dedicated specialists, and optimized and updated green chemistry website articles to promote "knowledge building"; to build green chemistry educational materials for specialized personnel in industry and the environment, and to visit award-winning manufacturers and hold industry symposiums through the Green Chemistry Application and Innovation Award to achieve "risk reduction" and "energy management". We also organize Green Chemistry Application and Innovation Award winners' visits and industry seminars to "reduce risk" and "manage capacity".
This project is divided into three major projects: promotion of green chemistry in college, promotion of green chemistry in elementary schools, green chemistry multi-community promotion and website update.
1. Promotion of Green Chemistry in Higher Education: In order to achieve the promotion of green chemistry, this project has completed the updating for teaching materials and handouts of the 16 lessons of general education we established from 2018 to 2020. In addition, team has completed at least 4 course plans and teaching materials for advanced education in green chemistry.
2. Promotion of Green Chemistry in Elementary Schools: This project applied the materials developed during 2019-2020 and completed the promotion in 11 elementary schools, and also held two summer camps for green chemistry in elementary schools in August 2022. The project also designed and produced 4 types of teaching aids based on the elementary school materials developed in previous projects. This project also created 3 set environmental education materials to be integrated into elementary school education using green chemistry-related issues as the theme. The theme of the training camp is the promotion of green chemistry and sustainable education, and the participants will learn more about green chemistry and sustainable education to promote internal development and creative feedback.
3. Green Chemistry Multi-community Promotion and Website Update: In order to achieve the purpose of deepening education in the industry, this project focuses on 4 types of green chemistry education materials for industrial production, 1 type of green chemistry education materials for dedicated specialists, and 1 type of green chemistry education materials for environmental education personnel, in order to strengthen the concept of green chemistry for relevant personnel, and hopefully expand the concept of sustainable development and environment-friendly implementation. The green chemistry education materials for environmental educators through the optimization and updating of the integrated green chemistry website and the organization of green chemistry promotion activities, we hope to enable the general public to understand green chemistry from different aspects through the multifaceted communication of different architectural groups and the multifaceted dissemination of new information. We also completed 3 long articles and 8 short articles in Green Chemistry website. We assisted TCSB staff to complete the 5th European Chemical Society Green and Sustainable Chemistry Conference and the 9th IUPAC International Conference on Green Chemistry, and completed the preparation and review of the course materials for dedicated specialists.
