Synopsis

The world is changing. Sea levels are rising, habitats and biodiversity are decreasing - and humankind is culpable. What can we do to limit or reverse these changes?

Formulated products are ubiquitous and therefore contribute to humankind’s global environmental footprint through their everyday use. As formulators; each of us can have an impact, we can design more sustainable formulations and work together for a greener and better future. To achieve this communication is important; we can play our part to grasp the opportunities for exchange of knowledge and ideas, to facilitate future collaborations and initiate new technologies to deliver positive reachable solutions. On a global scale, more sustainable formulations can contribute to a more sustainable future.  

As part of this meeting, we will discuss the challenges, how we might address these and aim to empower and inspire attendees to build connections and develop sustainable solutions to enable positive change.


Attendees

This event will be of interest to industrialists, academics and students working in the field of formulation science and product design, chemistry, colloids, physical sciences, pharmaceuticals, food, biological sciences and environmental sciences amongst others.
