In an effort to advance the discussion of green chemistry and engineering, the National Academies’ Chemical Sciences Roundtable (CSR) held a workshop in November 2005 that was designed to look at the current state of green chemistry and green engineering education; to raise awareness about the tools that are available but may not yet be fully implemented across educational institutions; and to highlight promising new areas that are yet to be fully explored. This workshop was a chance to gather information, share ideas, and develop a platform from which the scientific and engineering community can address some particularly challenging issues. This document summarizes the presentations and discussions that took place at the workshop. In accordance with the policies of the CSR, the workshop did not attempt to establish any consensus conclusions or recommendations about the needs and future directions to be taken, focusing instead on the issues identified by the speakers.
