NESSE Launch Event: From Bench to Big Picture

How is science making a difference on critical environmental, economic, and social issues? How do you bring your science from the bench to the big picture?

We are very excited to announce the launch of NESSE in collaboration with the American Chemical Society Green Chemistry Institute on Monday 16th June from 6.30-8.30pm in Washington DC at a unique cross-disciplinary event discussing how we can create truly sustainable science.

Today’s most pressing problems require all hands on deck, therefore it is crucial for scientists to connect their work across disciplines and to the general public. If you want to know to bridge science to big-picture issues like climate change, conflict minerals, sustainable business, and more, this is the event for you.

We will be joined by a panel of scientists who are actively pursuing world-changing chemistry, communicators who will elucidate what skills are necessary to do this, professionals who help scientists connect their work to policy decisions on The Hill, and students who are fostering communities across disciplines.

There will be brief introductions from the speakers, followed by a town-hall style and small-group discussions that will allow all audience members to talk about the science and issues they are most passionate about!

Speakers include:

Paul Chirik, Professor of Chemistry at Princeton University
Darcy Gentleman, Manager of Public Policy Communications at American Chemical Society
Laura Hoch, Graduate student at University of Toronto & Founding member of NESSE
Caroline Trupp Gil, Director of Federal Affairs at American Chemical Society

The event is free and includes food and refreshments. Tickets are limited so sign-up today
