A framework for analysis of systems thinking in chemistry education, consisting of three nodes or subsystems, has been published, which sets the context for the IUPAC project titled Learning Objectives and Strategies for Infusing Systems Thinking into (Post)-Secondary General Chemistry Education ( ). The project goals are to guide educators and students to see more clearly the relevance of chemistry education for addressing challenges such as sustainability, alternative energy, planetary boundaries, and the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The next project milestone will be activities (a plenary talk, symposium, workshop, and a project meeting of the task force) at the 25th IUPAC International Conference on Chemistry Education (ICCE) in Sydney, 10-14 July 2018.
