The inclusion of environmental and/or health education in the science curriculum especially chemistry has been difficult because of the more theoretical approach adopted. The situation has now changed, for instance in the new chemistry curriculum, a lot more attention has been paid to link up science and the society. This has made the insertion of environmental education and / or health education possible. The present paper is an example of the possible inclusion of environmental/health education in the chemistry curriculum. Copyright © 1996 University of Hong Kong.
