The Oppenheim Lecture Series has been established at the Institute of the Environment and Sustainability through a generous gift by Patricia Oppenheim and her family in memory of Rudi Oppenheim. This evening lecture series presents world class speakers to educate, inform and build community discourse about the diverse environmental problems of our time.

Presented with the
UCLA Sustainable Technology & Policy Program

Historically, products and processes have been regulated with the goal of reducing toxicity to acceptable levels based on human health risks. Green Chemistry is a powerful tool in preventing toxicity before it occurs. This approach can lead to reduced hazard, improved performance, and economic growth simultaneously. Dr. Anastas will discuss scientific advances in the design of intrinsically safe and environmentally benign products and the resulting paradigm shift in understanding the relationship between people, chemicals, and the environment.

Wednesday, November 16, 2011
6:00 pm Reception
7:00 pm Lecture
Fowler Museum at UCLA

About the Lecturer:
Known widely as the “Father of Green Chemistry” for his groundbreaking research on the design, manufacture, and use of minimally-toxic, environmentally-benign chemicals, Dr. Anastas has an extensive record of leadership in government, academia, and the private sector.
