Chemists Celebrate Earth Week (CCEW)

Chemists Celebrate Earth Week

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.

During 2019’s International Year of the Periodic Table, CCEW will be celebrated April 21-27, 2019 with the theme, "Take Note: The Chemistry of Paper." The CCEW 2019 edition of Celebrating Chemistry and other online resources are now available.
