News and Events




GreenChem UBC has a series of goals which focus on educating student researchers and raising awareness about green chemistry.

We do this through fun events like Coffee-Time trivia and educational seminars such as our Chip-Chat Dinner and Discussion group and our Sustainable Science Seminar series.

We are also committed to promoting the principles of green chemistry with non-scientists though our Conversing with the Community discussions.
