my name is Rahma Yanda, my nick name is Ira. I'm 23 years old and recently graduted from Andalas University, Indonesia for Bachelor degree in Chemistry.

I have been concerning about environment since i entered chemistry department in my second year in University. I know and realize that chemistry takes important role in every part in this world including energy, food, waste, etc.

I had studied about chemistry and its role but i didn't apply it much yet in my daily life and for my environment.

On january 2011, me and my friends made like volunteers community called GreeGe (Green Generations). Our first activty was cleaning the beachside of Padang city from the trash. We had done it two times...

We want to more concern about environmental issues and try to find the solutions of it. We want to know more about chemistry and its applications to solve this issues.

With this forum, i hope IYC could guiding this community, do collaboration and supporting each other also, helping to solve environmental issues with the discussion and action. And me and my friends from GreeGe hope could do our contribution for world by chemistry also.
