The International Science Festival

The International Science Festival in Gothenburg is one of Europe’s leading popular science events. FRAM arranges open seminars to spread knowledge about risks connected to chemicals, and what we do to manage them.

2019: "Chemicals, an ignored sustainable development goal?"

Do we need a new international SDG about chemicals, similar to the Swedish goal of a “non-toxic environment”?

Participating are Anna Lennquist from ChemSec, Bethanie Carney Almroth from the University of Gothenburg, Magnus Nydén from Nouryon, and Thomas Backhaus and Åsa Arrhenius from FRAM at the University of Gothenburg.
