Good evening to all. Chemistry is all around us. It is the motherboard of all sciences and its related fields. The application of chemistry is not only creating inventions or discovering new things, but it's about thinking outside the box. I think that's how the bullet and lipstick idea came from. Chemistry affects all of us. Climate change, algal bloom, eutrophication, cyclogenesis and all other terms are related to chemistry. These are not environmental problems but are issues to be absolved. The IYC believes in all these, and also it believes that everything around us should be a mutual relationship; Our Science Club also expresses and recognizes the importance of the IYC. The club with the affiliation, with the IYC, can help bring forth change beneficial to all. Thank you very much for your time.
