The target of the Unidad de Gestión Ambiental, where I work, is incorporate the experimental teaching and research environment, according to the methodology developed by the Faculty of chemistry.

We want:

* Be aware graduates of UNAM, the social responsibility that involves working with dangerous products to not harm living beings and the environment.

* Integrate into experimental work (teaching or research) of the University community required knowledge for and handling products and hazardous waste linked to their work.

* Develop, implement and operate the most convenient model for the UNAM, to enable the adequate management of the hazardous waste generated.

* Implement this methodology at levels high, higher postgraduate and research of the UNAM

We want to know what activities will be realized in Mexico to celebrate the International Year of Chemistry 2011 and how we can participate
