RSC | A sustainable chemistry curriculum for a sustainable planet

Young people are acutely aware of the sustainability challenges they face, and education is crucial to ensuring they are equipped to deal with these challenges and thrive in a green economy. In order to determine the best route to achieving this goal, we asked young people, educators, and chemists working in academia and industry across the UK and Ireland what they think of the way climate change and sustainability are currently taught in science and chemistry lessons. Read on to learn the key findings from these surveys, and the next steps to a curriculum that's fit for the future.

Published in 2021-22, this Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) guidance is made up of two parts:

  • Part 1 – the view from educators and young people
  • Part 2 – the view from potential future employers in industry and academia
