Chemistry educators from around the world have contributed articles to the Journal of Chemical Education now collected in a special issue on systems thinking, and green and sustainable chemistry.

Papers in the issue are intended to be the inaugural global reference point for literature on systems thinking in chemistry education that will lead to further understanding about the interdependence of the components of systems at work for chemistry learners, and the application of systems thinking to green and sustainable chemistry education.

Guest Editors for the issue were Peter G. Mahaffy, Felix M. Ho, Julie A. Haack, and Edward J. Brush.  The issue contains the following contributions authored by UO Chemistry and Biochemistry faculty Julie Haack and Jim Hutchison, and alumna Aurora Ginzburg, PhD Class of 2019:
