Green Chemistry is one of the key sciences of a sustainable development on earth and required for reaching the 17 UN-Goals. Green chemistry, also known as sustainable chemistry, is the design of chemical products and processes that reduce or eliminate the use or generation of hazardous substances. Green chemistry applies the cycle of a chemical product,including its design, manufacture and use.


During the 49th IUPAC General Assembly in 2017, Sao Paulo, Brazil, it was officially announced that the 2019 IUPAC Summer School on Green Chemistry will be held in Tanzania. This is the first time this event is being held in Africa managed by the IUPAC Interdivisional Committee on Green Chemistry for Sustainable Development (ICGCSD). The Summer School will be hosted by the University of Dar es Salaam (UDSM), University of Dodoma (UDOM), the Tanzania Bureau of Standards (TBS) and the Government Chemist Laboratory Authority (GCLA) in collaboration with the Tanzania Chemical Society (TCS)

The 2019 Summer school is special in that it will be held during the 100th Anniversary of IUPAC. Further to that, 2019 is the International Year of the Periodic Table as declared by United Nation, coinciding with the150th Anniversary of Dmitry Mendeleeves's discovery of the periodic system.

The event will provide the participants with an understanding of the latest developments of the concepts and management of green/sustainable chemistry.
