Evolutionary Biologist David Seaborg: Science Enriches Our Lives with Fantastic Ideas and Discoveries
When talking about science, David Seaborg says that the music, art, and theater are important in exciting people and catching their interest about science and scientific issues, such climate change and the extinction crisis. A renowned evolutionary biologist and the son of Nobel Laureate Glenn T. Seaborg, David has founded and currently leads the World Rainforest Fund, a non-profit organization dedicated to saving the rainforest and preserving biodiversity worldwide. This year, David Seaborg will speak at the 4th International Conference on the Periodic Table that will take place at ITMO University. We talked to the scientist about the usefulness Periodic Table, the promising potential of alternative energy sources, and why establishing a dialog between politicians and society is so important.

In Moscow, an official ceremony has celebrated the opening of the International Year of the Periodic Table. President of the Russian Academy of Sciences Alexander Sergeev, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, renowned scientists, officials, and representatives of scientific and public organizations from around the world have attended the event. Throughout the year, many events in Russia and abroad will be dedicated to the topic of the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements. Below is a list of all the important chemistry-related events that will be held in Russia this year.
1869 is considered to be the year of discovery of the Periodic System by the Russian scientist Dmitri Mendeleev. To commemorate the 150th anniversary of this important milestone, the General Assembly of the United Nations proclaimed 2019 the International Year of the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements (IYPT 2019). The opening ceremony was hosted in UNESCO headquarters in Paris on January 29. It kick-started the year abounding with large-scale scientific events such as the key 4th International Conference on the Periodic Table, which is to be held at ITMO University in July 2019.
