The Journal of Chemical Education announces a call for papers for an upcoming special issue on Reimagining Chemistry Education: Systems Thinking, and Green and Sustainable Chemistry. See the opening paragraph of the announcement:
"A number of recent publications have challenged the profession of chemistry to transform itself to address emerging global challenges in the context of a rapidly changing world.(1−4) Common themes in these calls are the need for integration of systems thinking into the practice of chemistry and for the reimagination of chemistry education to more effectively help educate scientists and citizens for their roles in a rapidly changing planet and society.(5−8) The Journal of Chemical Education announces a call for papers for an upcoming special issue to report on and guide efforts to reimagine chemistry education through infusing systems thinking approaches throughout educational programs. The themed issue will publish reviews and explorations of the scope and definition of systems thinking in the context of chemistry education, as well as educational research and practice oriented by systems thinking approaches. The issue will include a strong focus on the application of systems thinking to green and sustainable chemistry education and seeks to include interdisciplinary perspectives that can drive innovation in this area."*
