     - December 2011 : screen to move to Brussels for the 2011 IYC closing ceremony on 5 December 2011 in the Square, Brussels

The EPCA / UNESCO campaign will be a great way to celebrate the IYC 2011 because it will show the world how chemistry creates feelings of beauty, comfort, appreciation and value add.
