CHAPTER 12

Green Chemistry Education in Russia

The great need for sustainable and green chemistry education (GCE) in Russia is confirmed by the data of public-opinion polls and reflected in the actions of the authorities. However, these concept and approach are not widely and deeply familiar to the general public and even specialists, so great effort in this direction is needed. The characteristic features of GCE in Russia are determined by the diversity in the economic situation in different regions. The main providers of GCE at all levels (secondary school, university and PhD school, professional training, and enlightenment of general public) are Russian universities in close cooperation with research institutions, including the formation of Scientific-Educational Centers. In this chapter the mosaic of GCE in Russia is presented based on the activities of D. Mendeleev University of Chemical Technology of Russia, Lomonosov Moscow State University, Gubkin University of Oil and Gas, as well as federal and state universities located in different parts of Russia, namely Arkhangelsk, Novosibirsk, Krasnoyarsk, Kursk, Astrakhan, Kazan, etc.
