The most significant problems our planet and most of its inhabitants are currently facing are anthropogenic in nature. It is therefore also the task of people to recognize the problems and to solve them efficiently. Efficient means prompt and problem-oriented - beyond political and (purely) economic interests.
A large part of the problems can (only) be dealt with in a meaningful way by drawing on chemical expertise. The creation and dissemination of factually incorrect connections, which are sometimes used as a basis for political decisions - and wrong decisions - are therefore particularly worrying for scientists in general and for us chemists in particular.
In particular, the chemical aspect in problem areas such as CO 2 emissions and CO 2 binding, air pollution or the spread of microplastics means that we as chemists see it as our duty to compile and publish reliable facts that are not driven by lobbying. We also see it as our task, in cooperation with experts from related disciplines (medicine, biology, physics), to design scientifically sensible and economically and ecologically feasible solutions and to publish them.
We want to be seen as a body that brings together the expert knowledge of top researchers in the relevant subject areas and makes it available to both the scientific community and the general public through various channels.
In addition to the President of the GDCh, the founding staff initially includes chairpersons of various Divisions and working groups of the GDCh, who in the next step will nominate experts who will complement the team of those responsible.
