Sponsorship Opportunity for Green
Chemistry Student

The Green Chemistry Network (GCN) has been instrumental in setting up an association of
sustainable chemistry organisations around the world. The Global Green Chemistry Network was
created following a gathering of leaders in Green Chemistry from India, Brazil, Mexico, South Africa,
South Korea, the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom in Delhi last December. The goal is
to connect established and fledgling Green Chemistry Centres the world over, with an emphasis on:
 Networking and Conferences
 Education and Outreach
 Funding Opportunities: Fellowships, Travel and Research


The University of Cape Town is hosting an invitation only Green Chemistry Workshop on 25-26
August 2014. The final programme is to be confirmed but expected to include sessions on
renewable materials, greener healthcare and global networking.


The GCN will sponsor a Green Chemistry Postgraduate student to:
- Assist in preparation of the workshop
- Attend the workshop
- Record key information/conclusions/follow-up activities
- Write an article for the GCN newsletter
- Record information from partners for the website

- Populate and maintain the Global Green Chemistry Network webpages on the GCN website

Remuneration: In addition to travel and accommodation costs there will be a fee of £500 (or
equivalent in local currency of the applicant) paid for successful completion of the web pages.

To apply please send a 1 page cv with a covering letter (maximum 2 pages) stating why you wish to
attend the conference, briefly outlining your interest in Green Chemistry and, most importantly,
detailing your experience with web page development.
