From bio to nano and beyond - a progressive agenda for technology, risk and the environment
Green Alliance assesses the environmental and social implications of new technologies, from genetic modification to nanotechnology. In July 2003, Green Alliance's Rebecca Willis, co-authored with James Wilsdon of Demos, a paper for the Progressive Governance Summit, a meeting of centre-left leaders from as far afield as Brazil, Bulgaria and South Korea. Convened by Peter Mandelson, participants at the Summit aimed to 'rethink how the enduring values of social democracy can be applied in new circumstances'. One of the Summit's key themes was how to steer technological progress in a more sustainable direction.
This paper, From bio to nano and beyond - a progressive agenda for technology, risk and the environment, set out a way forward for politicians faced with these issues and was discussed by the Summit's working groups.
