A suite of powerful new, emerging technologies including nanotechnology, synthetic biology and geoengineering pose grave new potential threats to human health, the environment, and society as a whole.
The FoE Emerging Tech Project aims to catalyse debate and see a change in the way we think about, assess and introduce new technologies.
The development of these technologies is being increasingly driven by corporate interests. There is an urgent need to ensure that new technologies are developed in the public interest and dare under public control.
We are campaigning for effective regulation - to ensure that emerging technologies are safe before they are introduced -and for the public to have a greater role in decision making about which technologies are introduced and how.
We are the only environmental group in Australia working on these issues and we need your help.
