I am a teacher of English working in a high school in the South of Egypt. I am a coordinator of UNESCO school projects and our school is an ASP net school. I have an integrated international team of gifted students interested in science and culture. Also, our school has a very good chemistry teachers who are very keen.

We are keen to participate to contribute to the well-being of humankind. Under the unifying theme “Chemistry—our life, our future,” we are to offer a range of interactive, entertaining, and educational activities for all ages. We are interested in reaching across the globe, with opportunities for public participation at the local, regional, and national level.

Our goals are to increase the public appreciation of chemistry in meeting world needs, to encourage interest in chemistry among young people, and to generate enthusiasm for the creative future of chemistry. It is an opportunity to provide a chance to highlight the benefits of international scientific collaboration.

We emphasize that chemistry is a creative science essential for sustainability and improvements to our way of life. Activities, such as lectures, exhibits, and hands-on experiments, will explore how chemical research is critical for solving our most vexing global problems involving food, water, health, energy, transportation, and more.

In addition, we would like to help enhance international cooperation by serving as a focal point or information source for activities by national chemical societies, educational institutions, industry, governmental, and non-governmental organizations.
