The objective of this project is to improve understanding of the use of practical work in high school chemistry classes, in particular in relation to the integration of concepts of sustainability. The project involves a multi-country survey of secondary school chemistry teachers on their utilisation of practical activities, including practical work focussed on green and sustainable chemistry.

The survey will be conducted online and in the local language of each country, facilitated by a country coordinator, ensuring the global representation of a project addressing an important issue (IUPAC Strategic Plan). Teachers completing the survey will be invited to be submit contemporary examples of green chemistry and/or sustainable chemistry-relevant practical activities, which will be made available to teachers globally on this website.

The survey will run across 2023-2025, as more countries become involved. Findings from the survey will be presented at regional meetings, conferences and this website.
