Chemists Celebrate Earth Week (CCEW)

Chemists Celebrate Earth Day (CCED) April 22

CCED, which becomes CCEW in 2018, celebrates its 15th anniversary with the theme "Dive Into Marine Chemistry." The CCEW 2018 edition of Celebrating Chemistry and other online resources will be available on February 1, 2018.

CCEW encourages ACS members and science enthusiasts to build awareness of chemistry at the local level. ACS local sections, schools, businesses, and individuals are invited to organize or participate in events in their communities with a common goal: communicate the positive role that chemistry plays in the world.
