I am "the old" lecturer in chemistry at Avedore Gymnasium - a upper secondary school located in Hvidovre - a suburb to Copenhagen.

The school has a large proportion of students with immigrant background. These students constitute the majority of the chemistry classes.

I am also member of the executive board of Crossing Borders - an NGO working with dialogue projects between young people from different parts of the world.

It might be fruitfull to combine the aspects of culture-meeting and chemistry since the general view on chemistry tend to differ quite a lot from one country to another.
